Rustic Crib

After several long years of trying to conceive, my wife finally became pregnant with our son. After seeing the limited selection of cribs in the big box stores I decided to set out to build one myself. I had built some rustic log furniture before so I had some level of skill and confidence. I search Pinterest for design ideas. I saw several designs I like to include one made from Beetle Kill Pine. I took the best elements from several cribs I found and made my own design. I found a seller on ebay who specialized in Beetle Kill Pine and order all my materials needed. It turned out to be quite a challenge because there are many safety rules that are recommended for cribs. I bought a mattress to help me with the necessary measurements. My timeframe to complete the crib was accelerated due to my wife delivering 6 weeks early but I finished it before she delivered our son. Everyone who has seen it has loved the design and the wood I chose. Some friends have asked for me to build one for their child but I said about 100 times I will never try to build a crib again.
