Mike I finished the pram tonight. It is built from off cuts of redwood and 1/4" walnut dowel for the axles and handle.

hawkeye10 Nice crib Mike.

Saving all your scrap must be one of the most important rules for wood workers.

marc7101 What about a baby walker?! Flowers can be placed where the baby normally fits in. Not sure if it's called a walking ring or a baby walker- those things that you put babies in so that they can charge up and down the corridor and destroy anything in their path..

Mike Here is the crib. The frame is 3/4 x 3/4" pine; the end panels and bottom are 1/8" Masonite and the bars are 1/4" dowels. I ran out of cheap dowel and had to use walnut on one side. I used my table saw to cut grooves in the end rails to hold the panels. There is a support bar under the bottom and all fastening is done with 1-1/4" pin nails. I used my Kreg shelf pin jig to drill the holes for the dowels. A little hot melt glue secures the bottom.

I think when my friend paints this white and adds the silk flowers it should be pretty neat. This was a fun little project built entirely from off cuts.

How about a square box, no lid, with inserts on each side to hold photos.
