I finally finished this year’s first crib. I made another one like this 7 years ago for my first grandchild. It was the traditional maple/cherry combination. The present one is made from beech with goncalo alves accents. I finished it with four coats of semi-gloss water-soluable polyurethane after sanding it to 220. My daughter still has 2 weeks 6 days until her due date so I’ve finished it with time to spare!
I already have the wood cut and shaped for my next daughter’s crib. It’s black walnut with maple accents. I’m ready to sand, sand, sand. Sigh. At least I have until mid September until she’s due. I should have a break before my next crib is due – my fourth daughter isn’t pregnant.
