When my youngest daughter found out she was expecting she asked me to build the crib from Wood magazine. After browsing thru the “Jocks pics. I told her I could do better than that. I found this beauty made by ND2ELK on the site with a fantastic blog that gets you through most of it. She fell in love with it.
I bought the fluted feet but made the split turnings. When I glued up the 2 pc blanks I glued a sheet of paper between the wood to enable me to separate the halves without cutting. It worked great. A quick pass on the jointer and they were cleaned right up. I made a fluting jig to mount on my lathe and used the 30 degree index pins to rotate it evenly.It’s taken me forever but the crib itself is finally done. The rest of the pieces for the youth bed, day bed, and full sized bed are cut but not finished yet. The baby came 6 weeks early and after a few extra weeks in the hospital he finally came home. The dresser is being made now. I’ll deliver it this afternoon. The baby only weighs 6 pounds now after 3 weeks. I hope they don’t lose him in this thing.
Just added pic of Silas @ 6 weeks. Today was his scheduled delivery date so he is officially off “womb time”.
