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!

Beautiful work.

I made that same crib for my second Granddaughter a couple of years ago. I found the Wood magazine plans to be very well done and easy to follow.

A great looking crib! Great design and execution, I’m sure it will last long to be enjoyed by the little guy. Great job!
