We are finally awaiting our first grandchild! So in the mean time I would love to build a convertible child’s crib. What plans does everyone suggest? I build Arts and Craft style furniture now not that it has to be A/C. I have Wood Magazines plans now and they seem a bit confusing, lot of info crammed into the article, but would like to see what else is out there? Thanks for any help!

Paul, soon to be “Pepere”

I bought the popular 3-in-1 crib plans that have the arched headboard. My plan is to replace the rounded details with Arts & Crafts details. For example, instead of an arched headboard, maybe a rail & stile frame with floating panel and a cap rail. If you search Google images or search for “crib” on LJ, you’ll get a ton of inspiration. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
