Every once in a while somebody need one of these, don’t ask me why but here it is. Made out of solid red oak. The cross drilled draw bolts are a pain but doable. As you probably surmised the baby’s name is Autumn. and that’s a carving of a Panda. BTW the panda was just a google search in B&W line drawings. Then I created vectors on the lines and just V-Carved it. Notice the feet on the headboard and foot boards. That’s so I could finish on all sides at once. Then just take the feet off and nobody will see the screw hole. A matching baby dresser is next in line to make. It’ll be the correct height for a changing table on top. Of course a matching finish which is English Oak aniline dye followed up with grain filler two coats then satin finish clear coat.
