I have been very busy of late and have had little time for the shop. However, my first grandchild is due in January and I wanted to make something special for my daughter, son in law and grandson. It will only be used for a short time but it will, hopefully, stay in the family much longer. I used American cherry, curly maple and red oak (for the bottom). Many of odd angles on this one that really pushed my skill. I did the tenons with a dado and the mortises the fun way (chisels and hammer). The pivot pins were the first I have ever done and went well. All in all I am pleased with the piece. I have a plaque that commemorates the build and his birth. More can be added as more precious ones arrive.
