The season is starting to change, meaning my garage isn’t a refrigerator anymore. I’ve had the lumber for the crib for a couple months now, and a combination of cold weather and procrastination has prevented me from getting to work. Now that spring is (kind of) here, my wife is on me to get this crib done. I have all the tools I need, so yesterday after work I got started. I’m using three different kinds of lumber, pictured below.
As you can see, my garage is a bit cramped right now. I’m going to be updating the blog on how this project goes. My wife is certainly excited that I’m getting started. I really liked shop in school, but I’ve never taken on a project this big as an adult. I’m excited and hopeful, but I’m absolutely willing to throw in the towel if what I build isn’t safe. We’ll get a crib at Target if this goes poorly, lol.
