My wife and I are expecting our first child any day now and when I heard we were expecting I figured I should start another project. It has been awhile since I’ve posted on lumberjocks because as I got sidetracked with home renovation projects among other things.
This project is made out of a combination of white oak, ash, and walnut. I copied some of the design ideas from CSomers crib project and from the wood magazine article.
I loved the project and it’s solid as a rock. I prefer to design my own projects but for anyone considering making a crib I would highly recommend getting the plans for this crib from WOOD magazine because even if you change the design they have an article on what saftey features your crib should include.
What I learned:
1) Ash and white oak can work well together
2) Making mortises by hand is fun for 10 seconds.
3) Making mortises at 2 a.m. leads to mistakes.
