Hello.

I am going to have a baby in about 6 months.

I would like to build the crib. Well, not me. The honey is doing most of the work.

I have found plans on Amazon, however I am unsure how complete they are. Not being very experienced, but handy I would like the plans to be as complete as possible including pictures.

I was wondering if anyone had advise on where to find complete plans. I want the crib to last, so I am looking at one that converts to a bed later.

Here is what I am looking for. Or similar.

In keeping with the unofficial rules of the introduction thread.

I am not that experienced, however I am eager.
My main hobby is SCUBA diving. I live in Maine, hopefully not for long. I am planning on going back to school for accounting. I currently work in a hospital cleaning the floors.

Can't help you with the crib idea but wanted to welcome you. I used to be an avid diver but if I lived in Maine I wouldn't be. I think my hobby might be reading - in front of the fireplace.

Congrats on the new family member.

He may have some plans? They are very nice and convert into beds if I recall. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Hi Deepdiver, glad you're here!! I used to be an avid Scuba diver too in my younger days. Got my certification in 1972, in the days before buoyancy compensators and many of the things divers today take for granted. Still have my double hose regulator, ala Mike Nelson (Sea Hunt) and all the rest of my gear. Tried to get my son interested in the sport but I guess it just wasn't for him. Anyways, welcome and congrats on the new baby!!

Thanks for the welcome. Do you still dive?

I have never dove with a double hose reg. It is something I want to try though. I am going to do my best to get my new baby into water sports starting as an infant.

Just as a belated follow up. I did finish the crib. It was made out of white oak. The lumber came from a tree that had been on the family farm. We ended up having to turn the dowels ourselves as white oak ones could not be found without paying in your first born. The dowels themselves were not bad but shipping was a nightmare. We tried about 10 different stains, and finally settled on naked with just poly. Unfortunately this is the best photo I have at the moment. It was so nice to be able to make her crib with so much crap out there.

PS, being made out of solid white oak, it is a heavy beast. It doesn't move.
