My wife and I are expecting our first child in January. I decided I wanted to take on building a crib for use as we grow our family. I purchased the plans online, but ended up changing quite a bit of it as I went along. it was a fun/ frustrating project. I learned a lot and was able to learn how to do some new things through out the process. I also am making a cradle to pass down to the child when he/she has their own children some day. I will follow up with those picture once I am done spraying it.

The entire thing is Red Oak and used a Mahogany gel stain then topped it off with a semi gloss poly. Overall I pretty happy with how it turned out, and already had to turn down and order from my sister in law for an identical crib.
