  1. First Christmas Ornament

    This is a First Christmas Ornament for my 1 month old son, Hudson. It was custom-designed by me in Photoshop, then built using a bandsaw, table saw, and scroll saw, and woodburner. Hope you like it! Be sure to check out the associated PhotoBlog on how I built the ornament.
  2. Baby Changing Table

    A friend of ours recently had her first baby. Using a suggestion I got from LJ.com, I went to the Lowe's website and got the plans. It would seem that Lowe's plans are created for the very occasional woodworker. No complex joinery here, but it did help ensure that the project moved along very...
  3. Walnut Baby Cradle

    Well here's the final product. It's a modified version of a cradle I saw in a WW magazine several years ago. Changed the vertical supports to turned spindles instead of flat boards. The main spindles are hand turned but the smaller ones on the craddle are made with the help of a friend with a...
  4. Baby Furniture - Crib

    The second and final piece of baby furniture for our new baby. My goal was to have it finished by the time she was born, but the little rug rat decided to come 3 days early. Like the dresser/changing table the wood is Sappele Mahogany, which is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Because my...
  5. Oval crib

    I made this crib for my first daughter. I had it completed when she turned 3 months old. My wife and I saw an oval baby crib online and they wanted $1,000 for it. Well, we all know we can make it for much less. After a quick search online, we managed to find the oval mattress for $187 so we...
  6. Baby Cradle

    I am always surprised at things you can accomplish that you never tried before. That's one of the benefits of woodworking. Last year my son and his wife were expecting my first grandchild. I guess the first is somewhat special. I decided to build a baby cradle. Did all the research and...
  7. Baby Crib

    Well, the crib is finally complete. It was done using cherry for the majority of the unit, with accents of maple on the top of the end caps. The finish was 3 coats of wipe-on satin poly., which I have become a believer in through this project. Now that this project is done, I'm taking a little...
  8. Bookshelf/ Quilt Hanger with storage

    I ended up needing a place to hang the matching quilt from our bedding in the nursery and realized that I needed a place to store teddy bears and books so I decided to build a matching quilt hanger/ bookshelf to match the other furniture I built. I looked online for inspiration and couldn't find...
  9. Maple teethers

    I wanted to make a teether for my son, so I whipped this up today from a scrap piece of maple. I made a second one for a neighbour's boy of the same age. No finish, but a lot of sanding, raising grain with water and re-sanding. I ended up hand-sanding the corners to round them sufficiently...
  10. Dresser/Changing Table

    July/August 2010 - Maple - Dresser: 54"w X 33"t X 21"d - Changing Table: 48"w X 11"t X 18"d
  11. Cradle

    My sister recently had her first child, the first of our generation in the family, and needed a cradle for the kiddo. Unfortunately it took me rather long to get the thing done, but here it finally is. Strips are steam-bent cherry formed on a 5-station mold, with solid cherry endpieces, a maple...
  12. Baby Crib - First Project I Designed and Built Myself

    When I found out my wife was pregnant I jokingly said I would build the crib and she held me to it. It is constructed with poplar for everything but the beadboard on the back panel which is pine. It is painted with an espresso finish. Let me know what you think.
  13. My Latest "project"

    Dexter was born Thursday evening at McMaster Children's Hospital, in Hamilton! I'm ecstatic, so I wanted to share.
  14. Baby crib mobile holder

    Sometimes the simplest projects are the most rewarding. My wife and I wanted a nice mobile holder for our new baby's crib. They are surprisingly hard to come by, and surprisingly expensive. I toyed with the idea of making one myself, but I couldn't find a nice design in my head (plus I don't...
  15. Crib for Sarah Nicole

    Worked on it for a month and was scheduled to deliver it a week before the due date but Sarah had a different schedule. Mom went into labor the morning I was to deliver the bed. Delivered three days later and everyone seemed pleased.
  16. Baby Rattle

    I got this idea from delturcious. Thank you! The great thing about this project is that it can be made out of scrap. I glued two pieces of scrap Russian Birch plywood together and then cut them into blocks. I planes the pieces before gluing them together so that it looked like one piece of...
  17. Part one complete. Next step? 18 years+ expected

    There were some requests for pictures from my coffee lounge post, so here they are! Can't put her up in front of the 'puter yet, she's coming home tomorrow … we're hoping!
  18. Cradle # 1

    My grandson is probably arriving this weekend so this was complete just in time, I have another cradle to build though, as I am expecting a granddaughter in October!! The cradle is my own design made with Eastern White Pine, leftover flooring from out cottage loft (was originally 2 inch thick...
  19. Changing Table/Dresser

    My wife is due with our first in about 2 weeks so I got this done just in time. This is my first major project since high school and my first time making drawers so there were some decent pains. I couldn't find any plans I liked online so I asked my wife to find a couple of pictures of changing...
  20. Izzie's Crib

    This was my first major project. I began milling the lumber in the summer of '09 (Isabella was born in December). All of the wood is red oak, donated by a family friend. The bed is all mortise and tenon, glued and pegged. All the curves were duplicated with a router template (still working...
