    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.
    Wow that's a lot of miles.. Great job.

    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

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

    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.

    Some really good stuff in this. good looking items, and neat as projects.

    I admit that Tim the Grim's contribution really wins out on benefit to others..... A truly priceless benefit.

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.
