Cocoa Beach has hosted an art show over Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. I always look for unique woodworking like this Nautilius shell made from spalted maple. You can check out the artist’s other work at Rustling Palms Studio.
When Kari & Carl surprised me with the news they were expecting their first child (Baby Uno) they told me by asking if I would make a bassinet for them! Of course, I replied, and here is the result along with some pictures I took during the build. The build was fun and I expanded my skill set with the rocker legs and double mortise and tenon construction.
I found an excellent design on YouTube from Matthew Cremona. The walnut came from a cabinet Dave & Lisa had that was damaged in the hurricane that destroyed their home. Thanks to Armand and Mary Jo for offering to drive it to Wisconsin!
