Yew Cradle
« on: March 30, 2007, 02:56:45 pm »
Hello Everyone,

My wife and I began a new adventure on Monday when our first kiddo was born (a little girl who got her mom's good looks).  I wanted to post a pic of the cradle I built for the baby.  It is made from Pacific Yew I cut a while ago that did not make the bow grade.  I've built half the furniture in our house but this was the first time I've done everything from harvesting the tree to milling lumber to building and finishing.  It's not my best work but Yew is beautiful no matter what.  Plus, I felt pretty good about using bits and pieces of this valuable wood that would otherwise be burned for heat.  Waste not, want not.

The little wood grub in the second pic is supposed to be there--that's our baby girl. ;D

congratulations from me too.  it's been more than 18 years ago when my baby-girl looked like that, now she's engaged and about to leave the house. savor every minute with her, cause if you miss it, you can't bring it back.

Looks like somebody is going to be changing diapers, not building bows.   ;D
Congratulations Josh,  that is definately the best work I have seen from you. And the crib is pretty nice too.  You are now enjoying the true happiness of life.  Justin
