This was my first “real” woodworking project completed in late 2011. African mahogany frame and stretcher, curly maple panels and hard maple legs. African mahogany veneer applied to maple panels and raised on table saw. 28 integral mortise and tenon joints done with drill press and chisel. Tenons cut with sled on bandsaw. Finish is sprayed acrylic conversion coating, and fully cured before delivery. cradle swings smooth and quiet with rockler pivot hinges. I bought all my k body clamps during this project. I have evolved greatly since this project, and I would probably alter the profile of the legs. I also didn’t do the best job finishing the round overs of the legs, there is a flat spot. Today, that would not have made it out of the shop. :)
-- I don't always measure once, but when I do, I cut twice.
