    It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

        Nelz,

        Nice Job! I am at the assembly stage of a craddle for my first kid, I'll post pics in a wekk or so. As far as wood costs try this http://www.woodcraft.com/depts.aspx?pd=1038&deptid=1038. But you can probably get a better price from a local hardwood store.

          Another source for wood is here;

          http://www.walllumber.com/lum.asp

          Check out their UPS Bundles. Most run from $80 to $100, depending on the wood and thickness (4/4 or 8/4) you select.

          As an example here is the current price (1/17/06) for Quarter-sawn oak:
          -----------------
          White Oak (Quarter Sawn)$122.00$124.00, (5/4)

          Above prices are for approximately 20 bd. ft. bundle of clear 1 Face (except for cedar and white pine which have tight knots or lumber listed as 1C + Btr.) 3" - 10" wide * 3' - 5' long. Lengths and widths are random. Add 15% to price of bundle if you specify particular lengths and widths. Lumber is surfaced two sides (13/16" on 1" stock 1 3/4" on 2" stock) or rough. Some of the heavy woods are skimmed to meet the 70 lb. UPS limit even though rough lumber is specified. Prices include UPS delivery prepaid in the Continental U.S. Please Specify Rough or Surfaced Stock.
          *Add $5 if Rough. Add $5 if over 5' long (Shipped in 2 bundles)
          ------------------

          Just passing it on, I have no connection with this company and gain/lose nothing if you order or not.
          "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
          John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
