Doc
You do nice work!  I like the look of the log, a nice change from slab.   Also the drill press is pretty slick!  Nice rig and jigs.

OK you guys have blown so much smoke up my asthma, so I finally got this one done.  it is for the CMO/ER doc at the hospital who's baby had an ACL tear, and cannot get up on the bed with her.




 




 




 




 


made out of pine to match their furniture, 16 x 19 inches to be stable, 13 inches tall to be 1/2 the height of the bed.  This is my third dog step.  the ones on line tend to be 4 inch steps with 3 steps to get up on a bed.  Not really designed for dogs.  I have the friend measure the bed. just in case anyone was wondering!

OK Doc, you got me good on that one! When you said 'baby', I am thinking infant, as in human and then I am trying to figure out A) how does and infant get an ACL tear, and 2) Why is a parent letting an infant attempt to climb on on the bed instead of carrying said infant to a safe place on the bed, and C) how is it that an infant is even ambulatory enough to attempt such a thing.
 Then I figured it out. No, the paw prints were not my first clue (shamefully). But your explanation was. And no, I didn't raise an eyebrow at how you knew the bed height, it was a simple question to ask and get an answer.
 I could say I feel stupid, but I had too much fun laughing at myself. You should too. Babies climbing up on beds, imagine the picture in my head. :D :D

well OG, I kinda did that on purpose, and we always enjoy a good laugh.  Of course she is my age, and her humans are all in college, so that is how she refers to her boxer.  The hard part is training the dog to put her paw on the inc pad and then on the board, then back on the inc pad, then back on the board.  hard to keep them organized enough to make a cute pattern, but then they get board and run around the house.  I will be in so much trouble when my wife gets home.  hahaha. running-doggy   oz_smiley   laugh_at  smiley_beertoast

Thanks for sharing your techniques. :)

What I've always done Doc, to make the legs all even and the base of them to all sit flush is sit it upright on a flat surface, like the table saw and scribe the cut around the leg and then use a very thin kerf Japanese saw to make the cuts. Last chair I made was a fiddle back with the back legs angled back some. Scribed and cut flush. Noth'n to it. :)

Always nice to have a drill press around. Came it real handy for making wooden ratchet handles for the loom. A big chunk of 8/4 maple, lathed round. Centre mortied out square with attachment for drill press. Then drill the holes for the handles around the circumference on a bent angle. Works like a charm.
Move'n on.

Why did you feel compelled to indicate you had someone else measure the bed? :D

Very nice job and very thoughtful, or great suck up job to the CMO! ;D

All kidding aside you did a wonderful job and thing here.

Good point. A few know, but my last day at that hospital is past, and I have taken over at a regional Hospital 3 minutes from my house.  I know you were kidding, but it does come to mind.!!! smiley_heh_heh  Thanks for all the kind reviews and ideas

Over at a buddy's house and saw the bench I helped his son make his mom for Christmas a few years back.  locust wood, no thorns.  nice long bench with all the kids names including one they lost close to term.  thin slab with bark on the bottom, very dense wood, no flex when you sit.




 




 




 


this thing is over 4 feet long.  heavy as heck and looks great.  Jim is x-navy, friend I brew beer with occ.

Congratulations on scoring the new hospital job closer to home!  Speaks highly of your abilities!

The locust really looks nice.  It is pretty wood.  Around SW Va we have black locust but few of my trees get to a size for a bench with out some issue.
