Red Maple Crib (Final Assembly Pictures)
« on: January 03, 2020, 06:44:02 AM »
This Christmas I was tasked with building a crib for my girlfriend's sister who is expecting in the next couple weeks. Since this was a gift, I got to do my own thing and it turned out fantastic! Here's a couple pictures prior to finishing. The entire crib is Red Maple, with all mortise and tenon joinery. The screw holes will be plugged with matching plugs and the whole thing can be tore down to 4 sides and the bottom for ease of portability.



 



 

And a sneak peak of what it looks like after finishing. I don't have a finished picture yet, but hopefully we will be going to their house this weekend to put the crib together and I will get pictures then.

very pretty , excellent job.
Around here Red maple is an unjustly much maligned wood.
While I was practicing forestry and brokering timber the mills would sometimes instruct their loggers to leave it in the woods.

Not anymore.  The strongest, most stable US market for a domestic hardwood is currently soft maple according to the Hardwood Market Report.

That crib is very fine.  An heirloom piece.

I like the woods grain color variations! Good job!
I made a cradle for a friend about 40 years ago from walnut that hung suspended from the ends to swivel/rock.

Now, all my DIL's want to paint everything no matter the wood species. It's gotta match!!!
Throw paint on it cause that's the thing.
I'm building a childs clothes rack as we speak and picked out some wood(pine) to turn the stands ends and bandsaw two feet (cedar) and it could have been whatever species as she'll throw white paint on it... :D

Beautiful work, a lot of craftsmanship in that piece.
You may think that you can or may think you can't; either way, you are right.

Thank You everyone for the kind words! It was a fun project with some absolutely stunning wood that I got to walk with from tree to final project.  :)

@aburnette165  My sets of plans almost always consist of some sketches on a bunch of post it notes. This one I did write down the size of the mattress that needed to fit, but other than that it is just random sketches scattered around the shop.
