For those that have been following the blog, it is over.
For those that haven’t, here it is:

This crib started a couple months ago with aquiring the lumber. My wife’s uncle had a sawmill with his father. This mill hasn’t ran in over 20 years. One day they called and asked if we could come and help move the good lumber back to their house from this warehouse it was stored in. If we did, anything they didn’t want we could have. Anything we didn’t take was going to make a great hot dog roasting fire. So off we go. Well, the amount of lumber was astonishing. We moved out all of the good lumber and I got a couple trailers full of the “bad stuff” the stuff that was going to be burnt – hence the One Man’s Junk reference.

This crib is an original design by … me.

Very nice crib! Brings back memories. My first major woodworking project was a crib for my son Alex.

I wish I was able to make a grib for the grandbabies. What a great gift that would have made. You did a great job.

I like your design. Very nicely done. I too, like the 2-woods. I am in the process of building Wood Mags 3 in 1 crib/bed. You can see my tortoise progress here…lol: . I am embarrassed to say, my Grndson will be 7 months old next week, and I’m still not finished with it. He’s doin ok, and my Daughter says, “don’t worry Dad”..... bugs me tho, because I’m so far behind. Hopefully, I’ll be deliverin it by the end o next month. Sheesh….. too many things, and never enuff time.
