Caitlyn's Transitional Crib
This is a picture of my 1st real woodworking project. I decided to make a crib for my daughter Caitlyn . It is made out of white oak, and is finished with amber shellac. I am very proud of this, and I cannot wait to work on my next project. I did find out that white oak is kind of hard to work with and noticed that the wood would shatter if I did not use the proper feed rate and/or took too much material off at one time on the router. I messed up 3 stiles that way when routing them. I had extra wood, so I just made 3 more... lesson learned. Take your time and do extra passes with less material removal on a pass.
