Another beaut of a piece Ryan. I agree with Max about the style. Just great! Thanks for sharing.

I can’t show this to my wife. I’d be making two of them for my niece who’s expecting twins.

Very nice Ryan. I have a baby on the way that I think would sleep very well in that crib :)

Ryan, I like your work. This piece is particularly nice, and quite out of the ordinary in terms of design. I’ve seen many cribs and many sleigh beds, but never a Sleigh Crib that converts like this one.

Wood? Finish?

Nice job.

Ryan – BEAUTIFUL! It would have taken me well over 100 hours. Now you will need to have a few more children so you get to use it!

I can’t take all of the credit on this one. It was made entirely by me but I did get the plans from a place called Kaprock or something. I’ll try to find the link if anyone is interested.

My son-in-law is trying to design a loft bed. He had his second child in a 2 bedroon condo, and he’s tring to increase his bed supply by going up. Anyone have some ideas of construction. He want’s it to match his current crib/twin bed. but he wants to go up for his older daughter.

That’s a beautiful crib. There’s something nice about making beds and cribs and the like. It will be used for generations to come.

Ryan,
I don’t usually stop rolling the dice for a crib but this one is a gem. If I’m still alive and able when one of my grand kids have a child, That is the first thing that I will build them. BEAUTIFUL!
