I just finished the construction phase of this project from the recent Woodsmith magazine. The lower half of the two-piece project seemed to be exactly what i needed. I altered the depth to make it a little more suitable as a baby changing table and added the rail on top. The piece is made out of cherry hardwood and 3/4 cherry ply and was relatively easy to build. (much less time consuming than the crib!)
I’m actually not posting this to display my work, but to invite some suggestions for finishing. The maple crib gave me fits and so I’m thinking about a simpler oil-type finish, perhaps danish oil with a coat of poly or just wax. A question on that would be whether to get the cherry colored Watco danish oil or just the regular stuff.
Any input would be appreciated.
