Black Walnut Crib

From a rough sawn board to a modern looking crib. Last December I was at a local estate auction and ended up buying about 550 BDFT of black walnut for $150. A few weeks later i was commissioned by my Brother and Sister in law to build a custom modern looking crib. It has nearly 500 dowels in it and disassembles into 5 pieces. My favorite feature is when you tap the drawer on the bottom it springs itself open. Conforms to the FCSC’s 23 page document dictating crib regulations.

very impressive… especially the part about conforming to the crib standards.

... and not a bad deal on the walnut haul…

I’m stumped. What is the first picture?

The crib looks great.

I am in the planning staged of a crib project, and am wondering if you have a link to that regulation document?
