This is the different assemblies that can be made out of the 4-in-1 crib.

To make the crib into the toddler bed, the front is removed and the toddler guard rail is connected to the end assemblies.

To make the crib into the day bed, the toddler guard rail is removed and the front caps are bolted onto the end assemblies.

To make the crib into the full size bed, you remove the end assemblies and attach the bed rails with slats to the head and front assemblies of the crib.

The crib is done and I will finish it after I get done building the 6 drawer dresser.

Hi Tom;

This one is easy to describe…FANTASTIC. An excellent design, followed by incredible workmanship.

I’m sure this will be an heirloom, shared by many generations to come.
