This is a Crib that was made to match a family heirloom that was lost recently in a fire. So it was taken from photos.
It is wild Scottish Beech. The brown accent piece at the bottom is burl/bur elm underneath are my details and it is hot glued on so that it can be laser engraved once the details are in.
HOTROD, the side has some natural flames on the side. I just need to get a better picture.

Great job that I am sure will become a family heirloom.

Wauuu it’s beautiful, and since you are a man with a warm and strong heart I’m sure, I think the flames are just right. Beautiful, you have a lucky family.

Wow, really nice design, those compound miters are not easy. Flames are nice added feature. A family heirloom replaced with another. Fantastic!

You are doing it right! Beautiful selection of wood… I love your workshop… reminds me of mine. (yes… even the “supervisor” in the background looks familiar) ((smiles)) :o)
