Just finished this crib for my new nephew Mason. It is solid Walnut. My brother-in-law (Mason’s Dad) wanted to help make his son’s crib, so we worked on this together. I will post some additional pics later to show the dovetail error
My bro-in-law learned about book matching, false tenons, pros/cons of shellac and how much sanding can be involved :)
The false tenons on the front are to hide the screws.
Finish is amber shellac and wax.
One of the biggest challenges to this project was find a way to attached the sides to the front. I tried using a sliding dovetail so the side piece would slide into a slot in the back of the front legs, but there wasnt enough material to provide a strong and safe interlock, so I used screws to attach it and covered it with false tenons.
