Well, the crib is finally complete. It was done using cherry for the majority of the unit, with accents of maple on the top of the end caps. The finish was 3 coats of wipe-on satin poly., which I have become a believer in through this project.

Now that this project is done, I’m taking a little break, but may continue doing some experimentation woodworking with different methods and designs.

Great project Rick. Baby cribs are a challenge to make. Whole lot of thought and labor.

Excellent! I really like the contrast between the cherry and maple – classic combination. Very nice clean and crisp work.

I’ll echo what David and Sawhorse said: the maple inserts really make this a standout. It would have been much easier to just use all the same wood – we’re glad you didn’t :).

Very nice piece.

I will have to try the wipe-on polly. Mostly I spray lacquer but the fumes are troublesome.

Have your say...
