Well I’m pumped!
What a great application of design and skill.
I haven’t seen Neil’s work before but I am intrigued now.
Got to love that relaxed confidence he has too.

Oh yeah, I just stumbled into Neil’s blog a few months ago. He has a friendly comfort with the entire process. His work speaks for itself as well.

Yes, I was admiring the crib and then had the Ah ha of realizing it was a project by a member of our community. I was thinking, my daughter is 18 in another 5 to 10 years I may need to build one of those.

Congratulations, Neil! I really like your take down cradle design and plan to build one, even though my boy is going on 17. I thought it was a great idea to make a carrying case to go with it, too.
