Man….been a long time since I have worked on the crib! Good thing my boy doesn’t arrive until February! Well, it has been about 2 months (I think) since I posted last…been studying for the PE exam (which sucked!). Now that the test is over, I can get back to the shop. To date, I have constructed all 4 sides, and broken about 1/3 of the sharp edges. Using a light chamfer for the slats, and a medium round-over for the rest. I managed to clamp everything together to get a sort-of “first look” prior to completion/sanding/finishing. The lines seem alright, not too bad for “winging it” from a compilation of internet pix. Anyhow, I’m gonna try to post some pix (if I can remember how!)
