Cradle Assembly continued

The cradle is basically assembled now. Jim attached the roof this morning, and that was the last gluing we'll have to do. You can see that roof's still clamped, as the glue dries:

Here's the whole thing. You can see that Jim sanded down the box joints on the footboard and they look nice and smooth now:

The bottom and the rockers will be attached quickly with screws. We probably will wait on attaching them until after we put the polyurethane on.

You might ask what the next wood project will be after this. Jim is thinking of redoing some of our kitchen drawers, since it'll allow him to practice different types of joints. He'll try to do some dovetail joints too. He already did our utensil drawer and it is so much nicer than what we had before, which was about one step above particle board and was falling apart. Now it's really sturdy.

Hey-- did you write a blog called Baby Advice that you deleted? It showed up in my listing of new blogs, but when I clicked on it I got an error message. I like Baby Advice:)
