I made this baby crib out of red oak, I used wedged through tenons for the back and the front. The sides can be removed and are held by lag bolts. I used tried and true varnish oil because it was not toxic for the baby and its been 2 years now and it still looks pretty good. Cheers

Wow! It’s a shame you can’t keep using it. Still I think the future little ones in your family will remember it fondly.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Nice one.
It looks like it was designed to be turned into a full bed as the baby gets older. Was that your intention when you built it.

Hi sean,

yes that was the intention, Im going to use the front piece as the head board for a single bed. As soon as I can get my hand on some oak I will build the rest of the single bed. And post some more pics. Cheers

This looks great! I am having a son in July and want to build him a crib. Do you have the plans available to send in an email? If you do could you email me at or send me a link to find them. Again, very nice work.
