The crib is completely assembled by using connector bolts, cap nuts and cross dowels. I used the drill press as much as possible for drilling the needed holes in the smaller pieces. For the bigger assemblies, I had to make a set of jigs with drill bushings.

I need to make the guard rail for the toddler bed and the bed rails with slats for the full size bed yet. This will be done after I get more wood for the 6 drawer chest. I am going to wait to finish the crib until after I get the chest done. Next I will show what the toddler bed, day bed and full size bed looks like together.
