Marshall's Crib Grandad's First

Submitted by pondrider on Thu, 12/03/2015 - 14:57

Delivered the nursury Furniture and have a very satisfied daughter preparing to bring our Grandchild into the world.

From Ariel "My sweet baby boy has the most beautiful nursery I've ever seen! I am so thankful for my father who hand built this furniture. It is definitely made with love and it's everything I dreamed of. I'm also thankful for my husband and brother in law who set up this entire nursery for me this morning. Thank you" 
I started with plans and inspiration and then added some creativity. For the legs on this crib I laminated three 1x4 poplar and used threaded inserts. #anawhite

I like your husband really like and want to build this crib. However pondrider hasn't replied so i was wondering if he/she sent them to you by chance.

Folks I am going to tell you to suggest you get the frame and hardware at place called products america .They have a link to plans that were on a magazine web site for sale.  I got the plans but the crib you see only used those plans to get started. If you look at each side independently you will notice that you can build this with Free and better written plans for Ana-White farmhouse bed.  yes, you'll do a little modifying for the sides but as we build that is beauty of everything we build in that we build for the size we need.   The plans from build America will help with dimensions. The other key with a crib safety and the fact that it must be assembled and disassembled in the room.   The plans from build america will attempt to show how to install threaded inserts.  I found Youtube and other instructions to be much better. My build has fixed sides meaning the front and the back do not come down. And I did not set it up to be convertable.
