This is the crib I made for my first child, Jaxon (as seen in my profile pic).

Beautiful crib I like the fact that you did not use any stain. That crib will look very rich with natural patina. Awesome job.

-- Have a great day.

What did you use for the frame assembly to hold the mattress? I am building another crib but nothing like my first. Care to divulge your secret???

I took the easy road and bought a metal “linear spring” kit. This thin metal rectangular support system should be available at woodcraft online. It has one attachment point per leg that you will have to install threaded inserts into the legs. I put three per leg to adjust as the baby grows. I would suggest that if you get one of these that you protect the underside of your mattress from it.

Have your say...
