Fair Daughter and Handsome Prince are expecting first child any day now. Specifications included wood, mattress and springs made in USA, complaint with all safety regulations, easy to take apart and non-toxic (read edible) finish. Used rift sawn white oak, fumed, then finished with mineral oil/beeswax mix. Mortise and tenon with threaded steel inserts in the main rail tenons. Lots of practice with new (to me) Delta mortiser from Craig’s List. Really made the 44 mortises a breeze.
