Crib by the Loza Brothers

We recently built this bed for a friend.  The bed is made all from Poplar painted white and the headboard is pine with various kinds of stains I had in the shop.

End Table by Joe

I’m relatively new to woodworking and mostly make small projects (pens, cutting boards, boxes)  My first big project is to be a dining table and I wanted to build a practice piece.
