Maybe send Les a PM and see if he has plans or where he got them from.

take a look a the one I did… it is a convertible (goes from crib to toddler bed to full size bed)... plans came from Wood magazine and hardware was still available when a buddy of mine built one a few months ago

I simply purshased bedsprings and a mattress and went from there. Basically built around the size of the mattress and designed in the ability to removed the from rail easily so the crib will be convertable to toddler bed and then twin size. Just remember, take care not to mount the bed springs too high….don’t want the little on leaning over the rail and falling out.

I just built a 4-in-1 crib for my new granddaughter. I did a blog series on how I built it and show my plans and cutting list. It might give you some other ideas. If I remember right, Les did a blog on how he built his.

I used these plans and hardware I got from Rockler. They worked out well. Here is a link to the crib I made. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/6524
