Grandson's Crib

My daughter wanted an eliptical crib. She had the mattress made and I built the crib around it. I couldn’t find any plans so I designed and built it myself. She seems happy with it. The mattress is adjustable and everything complies with the codes. This is my first grandchild and it was a labor of love. I made a dresser and another piece that will serve as a changing table. This is the first time that I have posted any of my work, hope someone likes it.
