Baby Cradle progress with pics *(updated)*
I have procrastinated enough. Baby shower in 2 weeks, baby due in 5 weeks. I hope to have this complete by the baby shower. Cradle made from Sapele with plans from Rockler. FYI this is my first attempt at what I would consider a major project.
part of the sides with template I made to get the curve right. Didn't know any other way of doing it without screwing it up.
Long sides, These dowels took FOREVER to turn.
The feet roughed in. Lots of sanding to due yet
These will be the support spindles on each end. My small lathe will not turn anything over about 15 inches so I have to turn them in sections. two more sections to glue up.
First coat of Danish Oil.
This was a project that was probably a little over my head when I started. I haven't done anything remotely this big or complicated, and I haven't done anything half this size since High School. It turned out ok and I learned ALOT. It was an incredible amount of fun to see the project come together
