I built this crib for my Granddaughter. It is constructed from pine. The back is a herringbone pattern “panel” that is installed in a dado framework. The slats were all cut from 3/8” pine 1 1/2” wide. Used a roundover bit to roundover the sides of the slats. It is built to be convertible into a youth bed and later a full size bed.
The majority of the joinery is dowels, using my DOWELMAX. Each slat has 4 dowels (2 upper/2 lower), the lower portion of the front and sides was constructed by ripping a 3/4” piece of pine and sandwiching (side to side) a 1/2” piece of pine. They were also doweled together. The back framework was also doweled.

You did a fine job on this crib; it really looks nice and I’m sure that it was made with tender loving care. Congratulations.
