Here is the crib. The frame is 3/4 x 3/4" pine; the end panels and bottom are 1/8" Masonite and the bars are 1/4" dowels. I ran out of cheap dowel and had to use walnut on one side. I used my table saw to cut grooves in the end rails to hold the panels. There is a support bar under the bottom and all fastening is done with 1-1/4" pin nails. I used my Kreg shelf pin jig to drill the holes for the dowels. A little hot melt glue secures the bottom.

I think when my friend paints this white and adds the silk flowers it should be pretty neat. This was a fun little project built entirely from off cuts.
