Matching Baby Crib

My son and daughter-in-law just had my first grand child last week. Back in December I volunteered to make the new baby furniture for them. The quality of today's furniture is not heirloom on a good day. If you do get good quality, the price is outrageous. I posted the dresser/changing table last month. Just finished the crib in time for my new grandson. I used maple and cherry. The design comes from Wood Magazine a few years ago. You never know when you will need a good plan. Thanks to my trusty Ryobi tools we had success.

  • MRPIP, this is absolutely gorgeous! What a beautiful way to welcome your new grandson. Congratulations, and well done!

  • Thanks. It was a lot of work, but seeing him in the crib this week made it all worth it. On a side note, that crib is strong. He could grow to 40lbs and bounce around in it and no worries. As a guy who has bought and won a bunch of Ryobi tools, I can truly say they are reliable. That's what I want from my tools.

    • Thank you. This one might be my favorite. Stalked your work. I would say your fireplace is amazing too. Unfinished it looked nice, finished was beautiful.

  • You are a very talented woodworker. This is definitely heirloom quality!

    • Thanks. I was incredibly lucky for years. My Father-In-Law owned a saw mill in southern Indiana. I printed fro him and he got me rough cut unseasoned hardwood. I quickly bought a small planner and learned to stick and dry my lumber. The cherry came from him.
