I posted this in a different area and had no takers. So….I am building a crib and am trying to locate the simple metal frame and springs that my daughter’s crib has. So far I have found a Hardware kit from rockler, but it is a little steep. If all else fails I will buid my own, but the frame on the crib I already own works real slick. Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

Mojoe please try Van Dykes restorers they are great ask for a catalogue they have all kinds of stuff and are pretty reasonable price wise. I also find rockler a bit steep for regards and good luck Alistair

Joe, there is a little shop in North Central Missouri called Nu-Rest Bedding. The owner operator has everything you need and will custom make any matress or box spring assembly you need at a pretty reasonable price, atleast that’s what I’ve experienced. If you want, PM me and I’ll look up a contact number.

With the memory foam they have nowadays, who needs a spring.

We’ve slept on a foam mattress on a platform for many years now.

Could you modify your design to accept some sort of platflorm?

Can you go to Goodwill or one of those consignment shops and buy a junkie crib, and salvage the springs set?

Have your say...
