This was made for my granddaughter 2 Christmases ago. First the elliptical parts were cut out with a saber saw. A template was made of the areas to be routed for the end pieces. The handles were cut out and then ends were sanded on a belt type stationary sander. Slots to accept the sides of the crib and the base were routed out. Screw holes were added from the inside of the crib slots so as to be centered as shown in the template. . Finally the sides and bottom were cut, the entire crib was clamped and glued. Screws holes were countersunk as shown in the template. It was then stained and varnished. My scanner would only permit half the template.

Hello to a fellow hoosier. We go thru Columbia City on our way to Tippy,

Nice looking crib. I just may have to try my hand making one.
