Just finished this crib for 1st grandson (due in 4 weeks). It is the 3 in 1 from wood Magazine. I made it out of ash from a local sawmill. The plan calls for plywood but I decided to use solid wood instead. The only difficulty I had was with the connecting bolts that came with the frame, I finally gave up on them and used threaded inserts instead.
Thanks for looking.

That’s a great looking crib—I’m sure your grandson will pass it down to his grand son/daughter!
