A crib I made some time ago for my younger daughter. (I had already made one for my elder daughter but don’t have the pics). This crib is cherry with curly maple bars and birdseye maple end panels. All frame and crib joints are mortice and tenon. Most are just glued but the joints on the base are also pegged. The only metal pieces are the bolts for hanging the crib and carriage bolts holding the stretcher so that the frame can be disassembled (good job too since the crib moved with them from PA to CA). The finish is BLO on the maple to give some depth and then a child-safe semi-gloss polyurethane. So far the crib has survived three children and is now in retirement and being used as a toy box.
