My dad had the walnut harvested off their land in SW Wisconsin probably 10 years ago. Glad to see some of it put to use for his grandson. Design was poorly based on El Greco Woodworking’s “Nest Crib” sold through Room & Board online store. Lots of mistakes and lessons learned along the way, but it eventually got done.

It looks good and well crafted. Like the walnut and the finish. It will be a family heirloom for sure. Great job!

Love the look. I built a crib as well (for my daughter). If I had my time back, I would have used Walnut. Nice job
