Hey Roger,
Wayne will have to post it again if he has it. It wasn't terribly complex but it was something of a stretch for us amateurs. Basically it was a cradle with spindles all around the perimeter of a dished out base with the spindles extending to a curved rail that circled the whole way around.
If Wayne doesn't still have it, I can probably find his old posting here someplace. I don't need the cradle but it looked like a good learning experience. If any of that sounds familiar to you, it was probably you that commented on it at the time (a few months ago).

Here are a few more:
Thanks for the Photo's Ron and very nice indeed! Looks just right for Your Leigh jigs! Is the wood Poplar? I'm really wanting to make myself a hand tool cabinet, but I don't have so many tools to put in it I need to borrow some of Fred or John's to fill it up:p
Have You used the FMT much? I like it a lot, it's been a great little jig for me I use my festool OF2000 router on it. It stays on there permanently.
Again Ron, thanks for sharing some of Your work with us all
Cheers!
