After seeing so many of these crib/bed projects here, I decided I had to make my own version. The design is based mostly on the WOOD magazine plans, except I used Rockler’s Beadlock Pro system to attach all the vertical slats to the horizontal rails. For those of you that are not familiar, the Beadlock Pro system uses a jig to drill overlapping holes in both pieces being joined, and a router bit to cut the loose tenons. I also opted to fasten the sides to the front & back with pocket-hole screws instead of through bolts. I decided I’d rather see a few holes on the inside than have exposed hardware on the outside. Finish is General Finishes semi-gloss Arm-R-Seal.
I now have matching furniture in my son’s room, with the changing table I made here. Future projects include a matching end-table/nightstand and a single display shelf.
Thanks for looking! Comments & criticism welcome.
