I build that crib for my son about 2 years ago – time flies. And as you can see on the last picture he will soon be evicted to his BBB (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/348706) and leave room for his lil’sister :)

The bed frame is walnut, the construction relies heavily on dominos and 1/4-20 fasteners. The mattress height can be adjusted and the slats frame is suspended by 4 strong metal plates to the frame

The inlay is made of holy and ebony and represent a great white. For the second baby I’m inserting now a turtle on the other side.

My son is almost 2 now and he has been “jumping on the bed” since he know how to and he hasn’t managed to break a single slat yet :)

Finish is 2 coats shellac followed by 8 coats of water based polyurethane varnish.

Thanks for watching

thats what i understand once the assembly is done the second half begins-sanding! im figuring on 50-75 hours of shaping and sanding, sound about right?

When I build mine I remember ~250hrs total : 100hrs construction and ~150hrs sanding and finishing. I remember going crazy at the end where you could swear you have sanded a particular spot up to 2000 grid and yet you can still feel some bumps & back to 220 ….
