The crib is the first piece of furniture I've made and it sure was an adventure. It is solid black walnut with a bees wax finish. The best part of the picture is solid joy, my wife and I couldn't be happier. Fatherhood has been great so far, it's going to be an adventure!

A beautiful crib and a beautiful baby, what's not to like in this posting? With this much beauty on display, the amount of thumbs up/likes should be unreal.

Wonderful Baby! Wonderful Crib. Well done for both!

The journey will be worth it, even with the bumps and grinds.

Thanks Danny, I tease that in about the same amount of time it took me to build a crib, my wife built a human. It was amazing to watch her pregnancy, gave me a new appreciation of what women do for us. It makes doing those diaper changes and other "dad" maintenance activities seem incredibly easy by comparison.
