While looking for a crib for my incoming son we found the Roh Crib by spot on Square, and loved it.
The only problem was the price $2,000. I told my wife I could make it, and she let me, I have built a few other small things, this was the first true craft I have built. I looked at the images online and built a model in cad. Made some adjustments, using the pocket holes I could hide the screws. Dropped the bottom of the crib down an extra 5 inches, hiding it from vew. This was also my first time working with a hard wood. Many of the tools I did not get until the very end of the build. I was cutting some of the boards using the router since that was all I had. Pocket holes will filled with 3/8 dowels.
Final build was done in the Nursery, assembled it would not fit through the door.
The visible wood is Walnut, finished with Butcher block oil/wax child friendly $280
White ends are formaldehyde free MDF and Latex paint $30
1/2 acrylic front and back. $200
some 3/4 plywood for the base $15
Pocket Hole screws $4
Latex Paint $10
Estimate Total $546
Jointed with Kreg Jig Pocket holes
Cheap plastic Rockwell Table Saw
Makita Sheet sander
I also built a changing table and a diaper/wipes shelf to go with.
The plan in the future is to convert the crib into a bed when he gets older, he is at 8lbs right now.
Thanks for Looking
