Project Information

Here is my version of a popular crib from Wood Magazine. Made from Quatersawn Cherry - no plywood in this one. Finished with 2 coats of watco danish oil, 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal, and 2 applications of finishing paste wax. All that's needed is a sleepy head to fill it ( my wife is due in August with our first). Now time to get started on the matching dresser. Comments always welcome, both positive and negative. Thanks.

thanks for the compliments. I was planning on making a changing table top for the dresser that could be removed and replaced with a normal top when it was time. I don't think the room is big enough to support both a changing table and dresser, not to mention, with the rate I work, I don't think I'm going to have enough time to complete them both.
