  1. Projects Penguin Inlay Medallion for Headboard

    When I built my granddaughter's convertible crib in 2019 (delivered the day she was born), I embedded a replaceable teddy bear inlay medallion in the headboard, thinking I could update the bed with something age appropriate as she grew. Well, years passed, and just as she moved from crib to...
  2. The Crib

    The Crib. Like most of us who have the woodworking bug, when my wife and I found out we were going to have our first kid I immediately knew my children would only sleep in a crib built by me…. That sounded great in my head but I wholly underestimated (again) what I had committed to. I began...
  3. Daughter's Crib

    After looking around at the baby stores, and being utterly disappointed in the quality of even $1000 cribs, a crib quickly came to the top of my project list, and was probably my most ambitious project to date. I started with the common 3-in-1 crib plan...
  4. Baby Furniture - Crib

    The second and final piece of baby furniture for our new baby. My goal was to have it finished by the time she was born, but the little rug rat decided to come 3 days early. Like the dresser/changing table the wood is Sappele Mahogany, which is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Because my...
  5. Crib with Walnut String Inlay

    I made this crib for my brother and sister-in-laws first child. It's made from mostly hard maple with close to 100 feet of walnut string inlay. The engineer in me tells me cries when I think of using a plan, so I designed it from the ground up. I did a fair amount of research into the...
  6. Oval crib

    I made this crib for my first daughter. I had it completed when she turned 3 months old. My wife and I saw an oval baby crib online and they wanted $1,000 for it. Well, we all know we can make it for much less. After a quick search online, we managed to find the oval mattress for $187 so we...
  7. Another Crib

    A friend and co-worker gave me some very old "old growth" pine. He was renovating his pre-Civil War home and the boards had been put up, at some point, to wall off an area in the house. Used the same pattern as the previous cradles (Woodsmith) and made all of the parts (except for the accents...
  8. Bentwood Cradle/Swing Cherry/Curly Maple

    Hi Fellow Jocks, Thought I would share my current project. Since the down turn in my business, I wanted to make something that would keep my mind going in the right direction. A little twisted I'm. I started this project eight months ago. My daughter gave me my first Grandson. I made a...
  9. Baby Crib

    Well, the crib is finally complete. It was done using cherry for the majority of the unit, with accents of maple on the top of the end caps. The finish was 3 coats of wipe-on satin poly., which I have become a believer in through this project. Now that this project is done, I'm taking a little...
  10. Crib for first Grandchild

    I just finished a cherry crib for my eldest daughter. As the pictures indicate, I didn't have too much extra time. The crib used Rockler's three in one transitional plan which allows the crib to convert to a day bed and then provides plans for the side rails and footboard for a full sized...
  11. Mission Crib

    My daughters announce their first child to me by requesting a crib - this is the crib I built for my first grandchild, Will. Will has graduated from it and his younger brother, Josh, is about to graduate from it. It will be used by their younger sibling due in early November.
  12. Cradle for our daughter

    I used cherry for this cradle.
  13. Baby Crib - First Project I Designed and Built Myself

    When I found out my wife was pregnant I jokingly said I would build the crib and she held me to it. It is constructed with poplar for everything but the beadboard on the back panel which is pine. It is painted with an espresso finish. Let me know what you think.
  14. Baby crib mobile holder

    Sometimes the simplest projects are the most rewarding. My wife and I wanted a nice mobile holder for our new baby's crib. They are surprisingly hard to come by, and surprisingly expensive. I toyed with the idea of making one myself, but I couldn't find a nice design in my head (plus I don't...
  15. Crib for Sarah Nicole

    Worked on it for a month and was scheduled to deliver it a week before the due date but Sarah had a different schedule. Mom went into labor the morning I was to deliver the bed. Delivered three days later and everyone seemed pleased.
  16. Steampunk Cradle

    When my wife and I found out we were having another baby, I wanted to make a cradle that could be handed down through the generations. After reading an article on the web about the steampunk subculture, I decided to use a few elements from it to make it unique. What started out as a few minor...
  17. White Oak Mission Crib

    I made this a few years back for my first grandchild. It is all quarter-sawn white oak finished with a water based dye and clear poly. This is the only picture I can find and it is not very good but some of the rays are visible on the head of the crib. The hardware was purchased either from...
  18. Oak Crib

    So I finished the crib I've been working on for the last several months. It's a few months behind schedule, but the little girl came a couple weeks early and I found most of my free time evaporated after she was born. Who knew? Anyway here's the crib made from white oak. The lower back panel is...
  19. Jude's new crib

    Here's my latest finished project - a crib for our new grandson born in April. It is based on Rockler's 3-way transitional crib/bed pattern. Wood is cherry and soft maple, finished with Tried and True brand oil/varnish wipe on finish. I made a few changes, mostly in construction method, e.g...
  20. Grandbaby's 1st crib - co-sleeper from cherry and maple

    Sooo…..I've been on this site for a while, just looking at other's posting and trying to absorb as much information as I possibly can. Thanks to all who take time out of their lives to submit posts. They are a very beneficial learning tool for us newbies. I am posting my very first piece of...
