            It's a tough call but my latest youth bed built in 2016 is right up there. It's the second one I've built. The first was in 1985 for my daughter and this one was for my grandson. Made from red oak and white oak. There are 6 drawers, 3 on the front and 3 in the back with full extension soft close slides. The idea is when the baby grows out of the crib the rails and changing table come off and it turns into a single bed. Took 4 months to build working pretty steady on it. Weighed 705 lbs crated for shipping from Alaska to Seattle.

                    George,
                    Check your messages. If you want to make a canoe, I have a very attractive offer for you regarding some premium wood that is hard to get.

                      I built a band sawmill . Nothing to look at but I always tell people it a prototype. But it does saw lumber.

                          Thanks Tundra. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to making your design of a roll-a-round open platform tool cart that I absolutely love. Enjoy your grand kids, they are special. Ron

                            Most fun was my Shay locomotive:



                            About 7 feet long and 600 pounds before I sit on it. I think I've got about 900 real miles of it now, should break 1000 this summer at Train Mountain.
