My wife is due in about two weeks. I barely made it, but i made it.

Im really proud of this crib. I made it from walnut. I made it from plans online, but i learned a lot making this thing, especially when i had to fix a mistake. Its a 3 in 1.. so now i just need to make the bed rails and toddler end.

I definitely need to take more time in the finishing game. Putting up more lights in the shop this weekend. I found a lot of mistakes in the finish when i got it in the house. Overall i am still proud of the work

Excellent work!! What did you use for finish? Where did you get those plans?

Looks great. I built from this plan as well but I think yours turned out a bit nicer. Congrats on the baby. Mine is 5 months old now and I’m just now catching up on my sleep. Better get that shut eye while you can. It’s all worth it though.

Your crib turned out beautifully, I love the walnut! I built this same crib as my first “real” woodworking project and it has survived 2 moves over 3 years. I just actually finally got around to converting to the full bed this year. I ended up skipping the toddler conversion and am glad I didn’t make all three iterations at the beginning.

Great work. It looks fantastic. I am in the process of building the same crib.

How did you finish it?

Are the bolts normally hidden, or visible? What color bolts did you go with?
