This is the first crib that I attempted.  It is made out of mahogany with a wipe on poly finish.  The front separates into two removable fences so that the crib can also function as a child’s bed.  The two drawers are made out of 1/2 in birch ply with solid fronts.

Thanks for the critique. I have since built another crib and the corner posts are flush with the sides. It is good advice.

No corner posts are to be over 1/16th inch high so a baby's clothing cannot catch. according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. Other than that it is beautiful.
