I made this crib for my granddaughter who is on the way. The design was done using 3D cad software which was great because it ensured that all parts would fit together.
The main assemblies are the front, back and two sides. The front & back are attached to the sides using Rockler Cross Dowels and 3 1/2" connector bolts. I modified the cross dowels by driiling and tapping a #10-24 hole into the bottom for easy removal. This modification can be seen on the Rockler Fixtures and Jigs section. Tools used were a radial arm saw, planer and portable drill. All parts were made from 3/4" pine boards.
A good plan will keep multiple set ups to a minimum. Think this part through and it save some heart ache.
"Have been a return customer for a number of years, and a recent experience has really cemented that bond for me. After using my Rockler lighted magnifying lens for a few months, one of the wires from the battery pack came loose. When I contacted Customer Service to inquire about sending the unit back, they instead sent me a brand new one - no questions asked, no return expected, no charge whatsoever. This simple step - coupled with top quality, innovative products - ensured my repeat business more than any other advertising technique or gimmick could ever do.
Keep up the good work, Rockler!" -
