We recently had our first little guy a few months back and this is the crib that I built for him. The crib is a 3 in 1 crib built from plans that I bought from Wood Magazine . The majority is solid maple, with maple plywood for the larger flat pieces. The plans were fairly simple to follow, but I customized some of the design such as making it a little lower to the ground (for my shorter wife) and taking the arch out of the headboard. The crib also converts to a toddler bed and then a full size bed as he grows. I’ll post those pictures when I actually have some free time!
I bought the hardware from Products America . The hardware fit perfectly if you’re thinking about using this design.
The last picture is a taper jig that I built, with a screw used to determine the angle. Simple but effective!
Update: Finally finished the toddler bed. Almost ready for the full size bed!
