BdFt       Measurement      #       Purpose
2.50     2 1/2 X 36 X 3/4   4    legs
1.45     2 1/2 x 21 x 3/4   4    end cross pieces
1.15     2 1/2 x 33 x 3/4   2    side braces
1.25     6       x 15 x 3/4    2    drawer ends
2.75     6       x 33 x 3/4    2    drawer sides
3.44   16       x 31 x 1/4    2    cradle/drawer bottoms
2.15     2 1/2 x 31 x 3/4    4    cradle sides
1.11     2 1/2 x 16 x 3/4    4   cradle end stiles
1.46     2 1/2 x 21 x 3/4    4   cradle end rails
2.44   16        x 22 x 1/4    2   cradle end panels
1.11     1        x 16 x 1/2   20  slates/spindles
0.44     1        x 16 x 3/4    4   pivot arms

The end panels, cradle bottom, and drawer bottom I computed by
presuming I could resaw a single 4/4 and get both pieces. The slats
will end up being more like 3/8, but the same assumption was made
there – resawing in half.

This is a total of 21.25 board feet, 23.5 board feet when adding for
waste.

Here are some local prices. I’ve only checked one place so far, have two other hardwood dealers here in the Denver area that I need to investigate prices on.

Ambrosia maple  4.99
Figured cherry    7.25
Walnut               8.29
Cherry                5.49
Curly maple        5.10
Sapele                6.48

The figured cherry is really pretty wood, probably my favorite of
the above listed woods.

The next challenge is going to be figuring out how to lay out the
pieces on the wood. Since it’s not dimensional lumber it’s going to
depend on the pieces I pick up.
