"Baby Arched Convertible Crib PLANS

This design is the rage of all projects for the little ones! The elegantly designed arched style crib later converts into a 60" open front youth bed and then ultimately into a full sized adult double bed! It's a bed they can use from crib to college!

The simple design offers classic elegance and easy straight forward construction for the craftsman with simple blind dowel joinery.

Start with the crib and as your child "graduates" remove the foot board and replace with the "youth bracket". When the child outgrows the 60" bed, add the two long rails and re-install the footboard to create an elegant full sized double bed!

The PLANS feature:
