Last entry for this project. Again, for those of you that have followed the other two posts “Crib for my son – the beginning and somewhere in the middle” I have finally finished crib… well I finished it after he turned six months old and just in time for the new year. I took the last 6 weeks of the year off from work to be with my son. This was actually good timing because I was finishing up my Master’s, a crib, and was able to bond with my son.
A little more about the crib since I have yet to give any details on it. I purchased and followed the heirloom crib plans just as other LJ’s have done. I made a few modifications to the overall look and changes to the hardware. Instead of the rod hardware typical to the heirloom crib I went with white hardware found on most cribs today. I was able to purchase part of it through Rockler using the crib hardware set and since I wanted to be able to have both sides of the crib move up and down, I purchased additional matching products through a company called Products America.
I definitely learned an enormous amount about woodworking, patience, and providing for your family. I am happy I did this project and can’t wait to learn more on future projects. I need to run as my son has just awoken from his morning nap in his crib.
