We are happy to announce that this project is complete!
|Brynn Josephine Glaenzer|
has taken up residency in this beautiful white oak crib, made for her with love by Papa Jim.
|This time we brought along our own "work table" to put the crib together. Big difference! Jim was estimating that the crib should not take more than 15 minutes. (Why does he do this to himself) I was hoping for under 3 hours.|
|Done in under an hour. That is including unloading and set up.|
|Bam! Looking good.|
|Dresser - easy peasy. |
Looks like things are ready for Lindsay to load up.
|Leah and Pursley making sure the swing is safe for Carson.|
Sweet dreams Carson.
Papa Jim's Workshop is officially closed for tax season.
See you in the spring.
Wonder what he will dream up to start in May?
(I have a few ideas, but I think I'll wait awhile before I bring them up)
|Friday night we worked way to late putting the crib together to make sure everything would go well on Saturday. It actually did go together very well, just took awhile as some final holes needed to be drilled and tools and miscellaneous items needed to be gathered. All in all a good evening of work.|
|Drawers and dresser ready for loading.|
|In the past when moving anything from our house or anywhere else we load of the cattle trailer and take off. This time Jim thought we could get it all in the truck. The master packer had quite a challenge ahead of him. But knowing now how things were going to go, sure glad we didn't have the trailer!|
|He used the layering method for the bed.|
|Every available blanket, pillow and furniture cushion was in use.|
|Everything had to be below the top of the truck bed so we could pull the cover over the truck bed.|
|The dresser was put in the back seat. Not an easy fit, but luckily Diana was there to help with the heavy lifting.|
|Final piece, the top of the dresser.|
I would like to say the delivery and set up went well, but that would be an out and out lie. I would also like to say anytime you get to spend with family is good, but Dan and Sally might night agree with that.
I will say that the bed has been delivered and set up.
Now all we have to do is wain for "Baby Glaenzer's" arrival.
|Three white oak drawers|
|White oak dresser|
|White oak dresser top. (that is one heavy piece)|
|White oak bed done! Four coats of poly and it looks NICE.|
|White oak - Sally & Dan's.|
|Walnut - Kyle & Lindsay's.|
|Jim brought in a ringer. She went through a pretty thorough interview to be approved for the position, but she passed.|
|Two coats of poly on each.|
