I built this crib for my son Lucas out of solid American Ash wood. I bought the plans from a company online and made sure they met all the safety requirements. It’s an Heirloom style crib and the plans called for five decorative inlayed pyramids on both end gates, but i decided not to include them. I like clean and simple let the wood speak for itself. I used Osmo hardwax oil for the finish. It was very expensive but worth every penny for the peace of mind knowing that my son is not being harmed from toxic paint or high VOC finishes. The vegetable oil based wax also leaves the wood looking very natural and is easy to touch up. Applying two coats of finish with a brush was very labour intensive with so many slats involved.
