I’m relatively new to woodworking, and this is my first crib project. I built it for my daughter (first baby) who was due yesterday but is being a little stubborn.
It is built out of hard maple and finished with multiple coats of a water soluble dark walnut analine dye, 2 shellac barrier coats, and 2 semi-gloss water soluble top coats. My wife likes dark Maple furniture. The grain is not so visable in the pictures but can be seen in person.
Overall, I’m pleased with the construction, but I think there is room for improvement with my finishing. It’s a very rewarding hobby.
