This is a maple crib board I made for my mom for her birthday last year. The concept is taken from another LJ project which included the cavities for card and peg storage. My version does not include a roto-hinge. The pegs are carved from 3/8” dowels.
This was my first experience with pattern routing hard maple; I won’t soon try it again. I had a handful of kickbacks which taught me a lesson regarding grain direction. The hole drilling event was a bit laborious but was relatively straightforward with the aid of a template printed to scale. It reminded me of the opening scene of Superbad.
