Well, I finally finished this project! Pretty simple, but a little tough for me. Basically it is made from birch and maple with a tinted shellac finish. Hope my boy likes it when he gets here.

Looks like you did a great job. How could any boy not like sleeping in a bed made with love by his father?

Great Crib. The time is right for you to get in the crib production business with all the cribs being recalled. The public will lose trust in the boughten ones and you could corner the market with quality cribs!!

That looks like a very stong and reliable piece of furniture.

Nice crib. Where did you get the mattress spring from?

This really turned out nice. Where did you get the metal mattress springs? I’m looking to buy one rather than use a plywood base.

MDeSchepper, I sent you a message, but if you didn’t see it…...I ordered the mattress spring online at…...ran about $80.

This is amazing. Birch and maple match really well, and the finish looks smokin.
