last summer a neighbor ask if i was interested in tearing down an old building he no longer needed
i said sure i had decent lumber so tore it down and stored it untill my daughter gave the news that she was expecting(nine months ago mind you )....
So here are two cradels i made to note the birth of my second thats right second grandchild Chevy keegan Pitts
theyre made from vintage helmlock and dovetailed together” no screws at all ” scrub planened and finished with minwaxes new “gunstock ” color then lacquerd ..
diagonal grain coupled with the helmlock proved leathal to the dovetails on the smaller one if i was to attemp
again think id glue up a pie shaped piece in the middle to set the grain at a more favorable angle ,only poped 6 pins total but recoverd nicely for a toy which is for my two yr old grand daughter Lexy mabey it will make it to her daughter
Todd A.> got a new camera ..what do ya think ?
