« Part 15: Sanding And Applying Finish Part 16 of Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib series no next part

After the crib dried for a couple weeks it was finally time to bring it upstairs and install it the nursery. I’m pretty happy with how this project turned out and Tommy seems to really enjoy being in it. He’s not ready for the crib just yet. We hope to keep him in his cradle for another month. That should give the crib a bit more time to dry. I also need to make two shim boards for the ends of the mattress to close a gap required to support a double bed in the future.
