    Crib build

    Started this about a week ago and finally was able to get some pics of the progress.

    Project is made of Walnut I laminated the legs made an mdf template and ran them on my router table(on steriods)

    I used the dowelmax to dowel all the spindles to the rails for the sides

    Doing some shaping, scapping and sanding on the curved legs


    Attachment 12436


    These two pics will connect to the side rails to form the top. The plans called for laminating 3 pieces together, taking the edges off at a 45 with the table saw and then roulding by hand. I used a hand plane and rasp with sanding to get the circular shape.

    The last 4 photos show how I joined the two pieces together using biscuits. The plan called for pocket screws and glue. I didn't like that so it got glue and 5 biscuits.

    Congrats, I have another baby coming around the same time, but I'm not sure if its a boy or girl yet. Hoping for a boy, but I should be finding out in about 2 weeks.

    I already have the crib though, so as much as I'll enjoy reading this thread, I won't be following your lead. Unless something unfortunate should happen to said crib and I have to build a replacement.

    Walnut is one of my favorites by the way.
