Very Cool, and exceptionally well thought out. This piece, along with the others you have posted, will surely become generational family treasures. Well done, Cheyenne.

Cheyenne,

The lines are sleek and classy, the color is smooth and clean, and the design is succesful. I have to say, I wasn’t able to follow all the details, and I didn’t realize that it had three different stages. So that is an exciting surprise. I am not sure I could follow the details unless I had built one myself. But it is a clear improvment on the designs you saw prior to the build. Now all you need to do is put Lincoln in there, and you are set. Superb man.

Well executed. I’m puzzling my way through the same design considerations for my own crib project. I completely understand being underwhelmed by commercial designs (and blown away by the prices.)

Beautiful work. I feel your pain with the design and hardware. I have also done a few convertibles, They can be very hard to make work, But the possible versions of design make a fun project. I tried to use as few pieces of hardware as possible. Excellent job a true family treasure for generations. Now I’m sure you have relatives as I did, your in business. the family will expand fast.

Cheyenne,
What a wonderful job. It will be in the family forever. Just keep it above the high water mark. Hope you are not being affected by the Mississippi. 5/11/11.

I have to say that that is just the crib that I have been looking for. I don’t need to build one yet but my research is over. I have been building cradles for my family members but you can only use them for a short while. This is a much more practical project. Thank you. You did a great job on it.
