A block for my newborn granddaughter. I got the idea from one of the CNC forums. All sides are mitered so there is no end grain showing. Trying out new things for my CNC router. I did things a little different than the original author in that I engraved the panels and painted them first, then assembled and finished. That way you don’t have to worry about the block being perfectly flat on each face of the block. Also with the small area open in the middle there is a secret note left by her grandfather in case it is ever broken open.
Wood is walnut because that will match the crib I made and because I didn’t have any maple or birch on hand at the time. Paint is craft acrylic in colors I had on hand, and used a spray poly finish.
