I wanted to give my daughter something that could be handed down from generation to generation so I decided to build this personalized baby crib. I found a company in Tennessee that sold crib hardware kits and built all the wood components by hand. The structural framing pieces are ash and the beadboad is factory second tongue and groove oak that I purchased from a lumber yard for about 25 cents on the dollar. They were considered factory seconds because of the knots but I think the knots add character. The pictures on the endboards are my daughter 24 years ago as an infant and my new granddaughter who was born in July.

Bentle,

That’s a nice design and your choice of material adds a lot to the project.

GREAT JOB, NOTHING BETTER THAN AN HEIRLOOM PIECE. IT REALLY IS A GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING. VERY THOUGHTFUL AND HEARTFELT.

Nice looking crib. Very nicely done. Nice touch using the pictures. I just did a heirloom crib myself. You building yours with hand tools makes it extra special.

God Bless

Nice crib. I first thought that you built a window in the end..then I realized it was a photo.

Have your say...
