Completed in 1986, one week before our son arrived. (As I write this, he’s about to enter his last year of college. Where does the time go?).

I routed the figures with a 1/16 straight bit. The third picture shows the drop-down side with hidden hinges.

Very pretty.

My son was born in 1986 as well. I wasn’t into woodworking back then, though.

Nice crib!

This has some real character with great joinery. Super idea on the “drop down” side.
