I just finished a cherry crib for my eldest daughter. As the pictures indicate, I didn’t have too much extra time. The crib used Rockler’s three in one transitional plan which allows the crib to convert to a day bed and then provides plans for the side rails and footboard for a full sized bed. The crib and day bed are finished, I have some extra time for the full sized bed to be completed.

The spindles were the really time consuming part of the project. Now to get started on the matching dressing table.
