New baby means new project.

The wife wants a new baby gym. I could buy one of those cheap fabric one from Target or make one. Luckily, the wife is letting me make one.

I found one I liked on Etsy and drew one up to make. Ideally, I’d like to design my own, but with the new baby, there’s less time.

The design

The dimensions

The holes are to hang toys from it.

Next step is to cut the template. I’m leaning toward using the template to route out the forms. I’m still undecided on material. I’m going to look for a high quality plywood or possibly to glue up some maple. This is my first real attempt at making something nice. Trim work is one thing, furniture (or whatever you call this) is another.

-- Beat it to fit. Paint it to match.
