I got the idea for making this baby crib by looking at catalogs and combining some of the things I liked from a couple of them.
It is made of Oak from old generator shipping pallets. All the slats are 3/4″ thick and the rails are about 1 1/4″ thick. This baby is heavy!!
This woodworking project was well worth the time. My youngest son used it, then my second daughter, and now as you can see below its my sons headboard now.
The back was made higher to be used as a full size headboard. The drop down gate can be removed so the front can be used as a footboard. I have sold quite a few of these they are more popular than I figured.
