This is a crib I built for my 1st child, Mya lee. I could not find plans for a crib anywhere so I just went to the store and did some measuring. I made it out of oak and gave it a dark walnut stain. I liked it before it was stained also but my wife and I thought a dark stain would be nice. I was very happy with the way the stain brought out the grain in the oak. I finished it with 3 coats of tung oil, because it is a safe finish. I made it so I can break it down into the 4 sides with some knock down hardware and also made the height of the matress adjustable so the crib can adapt as she grows. She is 3 months old now and has been sleeping in it for a few weeks now and seems to be very pleased with my work. Some of these pics were taken with my cell phone, sorry they’re a little blurry
