1. DIY Homemade Crib Plan

DIY Homemade Crib Plan

Made from pine boards, this DIY homemade crib is large and offers lots of space. Although it was later stained a dark brownish color, I prefer the natural pine color and feel.

This tutorial uses 4×4 and 2×4 boards, as well as 1x2s and 1x3s. The tutorial starts off with a material supplies list.  Next is a detailed explanation of the cutting process and then the assembly of the different boards.

There are quite a few diagrams with measurements and pictures of the actual building process, including the baby crib.

It will take you anywhere between 6 hours and 2 days to finish this project, depending on how skilled you are. Total material cost is about $200.
