    That looks like some darn tedious work L.
    But that's a sharp looking crib. I can't wait to see the finish on it.

      I bought 4 2x4's and used some scrap wood to make this table. The Skil saw was under $40, the conduit and other electrical parts cost less then $5. So in all $56 isn't bad for a worktable that doubles as a mite saw stand and table saw. Just need to finish the blade guard and rip fence. In a few weeks I'll add the pictures of the high chair for my son.
      Pretty handy and easy. I made this a while back from an idea out of Shop Notes and it's really handy. It's got two stops on each end, plus a set of long extension wings that aren't in the picture, but give you a 6-foot support on each end. The whole thing comes apart and the wings in the picture slide into the body for easy transport.

      And it all magically fit on an old aquarium stand that I didn't need anymore after I built a new one. Don't ask me why I painted it white, it was the only can of paint I had around at the time.

      • Some great looking work, guys. Mr Lorax, the rays in the stiles and cross pieces of that crib look awesome (as does the carvings on the ends) I do hope you're not going to cover them up with milk-paint or the like (altho I guess "milk" paint would be appropriate for a crib!)

        • Thanks Gofor.
          The wood is cherry. 100% clear both sides, 100% red one side, almost 100% red on the other side. Had to drive 150 miles one way to buy it. The lower half of the end caps is curly maple, just for a little contrast.The carvings I picked up from Meisel for $6.50 each! It's got a clear poly finish on it now. 4 coats down, 2 to go.

                I don't remember what issue I got it out of, but it was reprinted in the latest Small Shops Guide that they did a couple months ago. I modified it with a moveable fence (my saw has an adjustable depth fence so the extension fences move as well), put on two stops on each end that will extend out to 30 inches max, plus I put on some long extensions that are two 3/8" rods that fit into holes already drilled in the side wings when you flip them over to store them inside the base, that extends the table out to almost 6' for chopping molding, etc. If I did more of that, I'd have tried to come up with an integral jig to hold the molding at the correct angle.

                I think it took a weekend to build, and most of that was painting. Total cost was around $40, but I did have some of the wood already. All of the knobs come from Rockler, but as you can see in the picture, I was one knob short so I've just got a carriage bolt for the left side lower stop. I'll replace it next time I'm down at Rockler. It's not fancy, but it works.

                        • here's what i have so far done on the high chair. I used my "table saw" to make the legs and what will be the arm rests and back. I'm thinking of using a polyurethane clear finish. Any other idea's?

                          Keep in mind I never took wood shop in high school, so I'm really learning on my own how to do this.
