My twin grandchildren have turn 3 years old and needed a change to their cribs. So I finished step two to the crib design and made the changeable front to make toddler beds. I think they turned out pretty nice.

Really nice work! I like the design! Is that hickory and mahogany? Or cherry?

Pottz: I already have the material to use the front and back of the cribs as headboard and footboard for beds. I’m prepared for that.

Well done. I just finished one of these in June on the very day my granddaughter announced her intention to enter the world. I opted to finish all three phases right away because I wasn’t sure about adding the other phases when I no longer had the crib as a reference. But I can see with two of them why you might opt for spacing out the build.
