My wife and I were expecting a baby girl in mid October, so a few months ago I got started on building a crib for her. The first step was to do some poking around online to get an idea of exactly how I wanted to go about building it. In doing so, I stumbled across Matt Cermona’s walnut and maple crib, which I think served as my primary inspiration. There are a number of differences, but most notably, his used tapered spindles. His spindles looked great, but I possess neither the equipment nor the knowledge to make them, so I opted for slats haha.
The sides lock into the front and back via bed brackets and there are spring loaded safety latches to prevent a rambunctious child from accidentally knocking anything loose. Also, I built a changing station the rests across the top rails and can be stashed underneath the crib when not in use.
Anyway, I hope you guys like it. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out and I’m hoping that I’ll someday see my grandkids sleeping in it.
