This is my first major piece and was supposed to be ready for the birth of my first son. Unfortunately he got it 6 months late! Laminated Silver Ash veneer…
Thanks! The cot is in 4 pieces, if you look at the photo from above you'll be able to make out the joins.
The initial cuts for the top and bottom curves were done with a router template and faired by hand as the curves didn't look right initially. Also I couldn't route all the way to the ends as tearout was a problem, so finishing by hand was a necessity.
The cutting out of the 'grills' was 100% routed as it give me consistent shapes across all 4 pieces.
