Moon Bassinet

Baby's nursery theme was travel and adventure. I knew I wanted something different, but wasn't sure how far to take it. I found a Youtube video of a guy making a moon bassinet out of pallet wood. Personally unless I knew exactly what was stored on the pallet I wouldn't put my baby near it. I chose to use redwood fence posts. I sanded them down, made the template/support pieces for both sides using my router and jigsaw on some MDF. And then connected the pieces using the fence posts. I decided to add the drawer at the bottom for storage and to raise the moon up a bit so it would be easier to pull the baby in and out. The project came out better than I imagined.
