Just finished my second crib and changing table. My wife said I did such a good job on the first one that I needed to make another set for the second child. This one I changed up a bit. You can see I didn’t make a curved head board and back on the changing table. I also put slats on the side of the crib instead of a solid panel. I made this one all out of solid maple. I had gotten an Earlex 5500 sprayer that I got to use on this project for the first time. I also used shellac for the first time. I can’t believe how they came out for my first time. I really love it.

I would like to thank everyone that helped me out with my questions that I had on the way. Oh by the way I just got this finished in time as we are on are way to the hospital today for the are second boy.

Great work and congradulations.

It looks like the spring which holds the mattress is adjustable, can you provide some more information about it?

Yes the spring is adjustable. There are 4 screw locations so you can adjust it. If you would like more info message me and we can talk.
