Well, I was looking at crib plans and photographs for inspiration over the last few days. I could not find anything I liked, until I found inspiration on this site. From http://lumberjocks.com/projects/30892. Thanks Scott Smith. I like the contrasting woods and the simple design. I then found a plan in Google sketchup with thicker rails and bars, which I like. I made up a cut list and made some design changes. I am thinking walnut and paduk, or maple and walnut/paduk/purple heart (if they’re girls). What wood combinations would look good together? Any suggestions or guidance would be appreciated.

Hi:
Have you looked I think Rockler.com. They have a couple of Crib plans as well as the hardware. I built the one that goes from crib to double bed and had no problems and turn out great. Good luck and have fun.

I looked at Rockler and I didn’t like the 3 in 1 bed. Plus, it gives me an excuse to make toddler beds!
