One of the joys of becoming a grandfather is that I got to make a baby crib. This is a project that I wanted to make for my children but when you are young there always seems to be other priorities.
The plans I bought from Rockler. The wood is silver maple. For the artwork a dear friend named Patty Johnson hand painted the figures. Notice the Cow that represents my daughter’s college mascot and the Eagle represents my son-in-law in the Air Force. I followed up with three coats of sanding sealer and six coats of lacquer.
Best of all I finished it up in time for the baby shower.
