I got this crazy idea when my wife was about three months pregnant that I wanted to build my first child’s crib. I never realized just how quickly 6 months can pass! As my first woodworking project, I learned a lot. I can see every flaw but I still am amazed how well it turned out. I used African Mahogany and Maple and finished it with General Finishes Clear (5 coats).
I didn’t want the typical hardware so often found with custom made cribs (metal bar the gate slides up and down on), so I went to Babies R’ Us, found the crib hardware I liked the most, contacted the manufacturer and ordered it from them. Best thing I ever did for this project.
Hope you enjoy.
