Collector Doll Crib Rocker Scroll Saw Pattern.

This is not designed for a small child. This is a display crib. It will hold an eight-inch doll. It is designed to use 1/4" thick wood. 

If you want it to be used by children I would make these recommendations. Scale it up 100% so you can use 1/2" thick wood. Then I would eliminate the four corner posts. If you make these changes it will be ~14" tall and hold a 14-inch doll. 

The fretwork is cut into each end. I have included backer pieces to back up the fretwork so the interior of the crib is clean. This also helps stabilize the fretwork.

Incredible Organization of a Workshop:

I can't even organize my desk drawer as well as Timothy Wilmots organizes his workshop workflow. This video has nothing to do with the scroll saw but it is a remarkable video to inspire us. I know there are very few people who have the budget to build a workshop even approaching this shop but thinking about workflow is important even in a small shop. Maybe even more so.
