Nice job, Josh.

It reminds me of the story a woodworker and his wife who just had their first child. The wife had picked up a "you-assemble" infant's crib at Home Depot.

At the end of the day the two of them crept quietly into the child's room, where the baby was in deep sleep, to have a peak at their beautiful pride and joy. After a few minutes of silence, with tears welling up in his eyes, he gave his wife a little squeeze and whispered in her ear, "Doesn't it just fill you with wonder, Honey? How can they sell that crib-pack for just $29.95?"

I think you are wrong; his first real project was his boy. And he's a work-in-progress.

Hey Josh: too coool!
To keep from repeating myself, I commented on Karson's cradle a few months back, and I would say the same thing to you on this project about the importance of this type of project in a woodworker's life, and those that live with us and around us.

Great story Don.

Here is the link to Karson's project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/112

Well done,
Mark

You might just be a lumberjock if you make a crib, just so you can have an excuse for makin babies.
