Last year, my niece Aimee and her husband Eric were blessed with a baby boy, Cameron. I made Cameron a crib of white oak that he sleeps in now.
Learning that precedent setting can be dangerous, three OTHER nieces became pregnant shortly after Cameron was born. So, I have three more to build.
This crib for Lyla Sue is the same as Cameron’s crib, only in Cherry. Note the plan allows for a toddler bed option. The full bed add-ons I can make another time, since baby three has arrived and I am behind on crib production. The wood is sealed with shellac, coated twice with polyurethane and buffed with satin wax.
I think I’ll try a different plan for the next two, but I’ll be sure to keep all posted.
