    You are amazingly talented! I must show my brother this thread, he used to do woodwork and really loved it. It may inspire him to take the hobby up again ;)

    Built this convertable raise panel walnut & hard maple crib for one on my granddaughters "June Bug" that little girl has her Paw Paw wrapped around her little finger... Even before she was born she had me wrapped around her little finger!!!

    The crib is a crib and toddle bed and a full-sized bed. She's only big enough for the toddle bed right now though.

    These were just for fun & dreaming of the day when I'll have enough animal husbandry skills to raise our own livestock.

    They sat in the shop for months. My wife came out to the shop and seen them, snatched them up and put in the kitchen window.

    We are so far out in the country we don't see a need for curtains.

    When I first got married back in 85, my wife brought me a top of the line & very expensive set of wood carving chisels.

    Being newly weds we needed a coffee table. I orginially envisioned a ball and claw oval table but as I was building it, it turned into something completely different. We still have this table in our living room today. After all these years it's still solid as the day I completed it but could use a re-finishing.

    This table has so many memories there is no way we could ever part with it. The carvings are far from perfect but that's what makes it unique. It's made out of pecan (hickory) which is very difficult to carve. The top is book matched flat sawn pecan, separated by pieces of pecan burl.
