This is a project that completed a couple of months ago for my newest Granddaughter, it is made of Red Oak with a Danish Oil finish. It is a convertible and will change into a toddler bed and later into a full size bed when she gets a lot older. I started with all rough cut Red Oak. Now I am working on finishing a changing table and cradle for another Grandchild due next month. Thanks for looking.

Congrats on the new addition. Speaking of this, I have a 6 month old daughter. Do you have plans? I would love to attempt this project for my daughter.

Thanks for all the kind comments, it is really appreciated.

Jon I did have a set of plans. If you google 3 in 1 Convertible Bed you will find it. I modified the plans some because it had you using some plywood on some of the panels and some other things and I did not want any plywood on this project. It was fairly easy to modify and change it to fit your needs, wants or the style that you like. You can try this link to find the plans.

For some reason it will not post as a link but if you copy and paste to your browser it should get to where you need to go.

Excellent looking crib. Thank you for sharing. I am getting ideas for a crib that I will be building for my first Great Grand Child. Grand Daughter just found out she was pregnant last week.

Awesome crib.One of the most expensive items that you will purchase for your baby is a baby crib. It should provide comfort, safety, blend with your baby’s room theme, and be durable.There are many designs and styles of baby cribs available in the market today.Choosing baby cribs is a delightful and memorable experience.

Have your say...
