My wife and I are expecting our first child in January. I decided I wanted to take on building a crib for use as we grow our family. I purchased the plans online, but ended up changing quite a bit of it as I went along. it was a fun/ frustrating project. I learned a lot and was able to learn how to do some new things through out the process. I also am making a cradle to pass down to the child when he/she has their own children some day. I will follow up with those picture once I am done spraying it.

The entire thing is Red Oak and used a Mahogany gel stain then topped it off with a semi gloss poly. Overall I pretty happy with how it turned out, and already had to turn down and order from my sister in law for an identical crib.

Looks great, I’m sure it will be a great family heirloom to be enjoyed.
