Early last year we found out we would be parents. So i decided that i would make a crib for our little one. I wanted it to be a heirloom. I used red oak with cherry pyramids for the inlays. Its made with mostly mortise and tennon.

Very Nice! I know you put your heart into it, especially since it is for your child. I really like the mission style with the slats. It really helps you to practice on your mortise and tenons. Please keep us all posted when your child is born!
