The wife and I are expecting our fourth child any day now and according to my wife I didnt get this done a day to soon. I guess pregnant women worry about things like where their new baby will sleep. Everything was done to the wifes specifications.
I got the plans from Rockler and they were okay except the side measurements were 1/4 inch to tall and I had to go back and trim them to fit. Not fun, but the rest came out pretty well. The plans call for wooden dowels but I biscuit joined and pocket holed everything. It was made from pine and alder and has an alder plaque waiting for a name to burned into it depending on if its a girl or boy. Stained it red mahogony with three coats of semi-gloss spray laquer then I fitted two brushed nickel handles on the sides and called it done. The wife has already made a sheet for it and is working on a bumper to go around the inside.
Maybe a mobile and changing table is next.
