Default Contest Entry

Okay.... I'll go first with my newly completed baby cradle for our first grand baby due around the 1st of November. This project was done in rustic style as requested by the expecting parents. It was a somewhat complicated project as everything and I mean EVERYRHING had to be done on bevel. There was a large amount of roundover routing involved as well.

Would love to place and win something from Bob and Rick. I watch them all the time on the Woodworking channel. (My router heros)

Enjoy the pictures and thanks for looking.

Default Contest

When my wife bought a new TV the old stand just wouldn't do. I designed this myself and built it with 3/4" pine. It is finished with Cabot Early American stain and several coats of water based urethane. There are spaces for the VCR, DVD player, TV and stereo on open shelves. The two bottom drawers are on full extension slides and hold DVDs and VHS tapes. European hinges are installed on the drawers. 1 1/4" brass pulls are used on drawers and doors.

Default Chest of Drawers

Attached is a picture of a chest of drawers that I have just completed. The unique feature of the construction is that it is made of wood that was being discarded by my grandson and his wife. They were cleaning up a just purched house and were discarding 12' pine boards that were 12" wide. I rescued some of the boards and had them planed down to clean them up. I can only guess as to how old the boards were. (20 or 30 or more years?)
I have made all appearing surfaces of this chest of drawers out of those boards (except the turning and the two vertical frt. boards)

So far, my favorite project is the lighthouse I built for my wife..
It sits on a base made of Petosky stones, which is the state stone of Michigan..

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Attached is my entry for the contest. It is a baby cradle I built in February 2006 for my first grandchild (grandson and maybe a future woodworker). It is made from Red Oak.
