As most new parents, I was fairly zealous, and decided to design and build my own crib. I spent a lot of time on this, and it was rewarding, and I’m proud of it. But turns out, it had to be recalled when my daughter kicked the bars out when she was about 1 year old! This is made from maple and the dark bits are roasted maple. The spindles (dowels) are hand made as well, and basically should have been thicker. At least it’s pretty!
