My wife and I are expecting our first born here in August, so I’ve been feverishly working away to make sure I make my deadline!
This crib is of my own design and is actually the third one I’ve made. The design evolved from the first to the second, but remained almost the exact same this last time. The slats are all tenoned (no shoulder) into the upper and lower pieces and help create a very rigid assembly. The only bolts in the entire thing are to hold the four panels together. I designed it with the 3 in 1 convertible idea in mind.
The thing that stumped me for a long time on my first build was how to make an adjustable mattress pad. I ended up making some sort of french cleat mount, which you can see on the mattress base (pic 5) and the crib frame (pic 6)
