Construction Weekend, Part 2

The second project is one that has been sitting in the garage for nearly a year.  While waiting for the paint on the Duplo table to dry (and yes, watching it dry is just as boring as is reputed) I decided to fix Myra's baby bed.

Here Myra holds the finished product.  The frame that holds the bed is quite well constructed, but the bottom of the bed, when it came from IKEA, was essentially thick cardboard.  I think it lasted less than 1 day before Logan broke it by standing on it. 

So I cut a section of the same 1/2 inch plywood as a new bottom.  Glue up below:

It seems that the bed meets with baby doll approval.

For reasons that are not clear to me, this picture refuses to be uploaded in anything other than this orientation, despite multiple tries.
