Default An arched canopy

Hi, guys.
Once I finished the crib, paint excluded, my wife asked for a mosquito net to protect our granddaughter from the bugs.
I decided to make something different than square so, using some basic drawing techniques I draw an arch. This is what I got.

That is a beautiful project, Alexis. It is something for the family to keep forever.

Very nice work as always Alexis. Sabrina is going to be very proud of her abuelo (grandfather).

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
