Whoa, Dad Made His Own Oeuf Crib


The Crib, originally uploaded by Burton F..

I'm slow to the game, obviously, but I'm too blown away not to mention it. Burton F., a dad in Massachusetts knocked off an Oeuf crib in his basement. Took him about eight weekends and about $400 for the materials--cherry, white oak, and painted birch ply--which, if your time's not worth that much, is a pretty good deal.

He modified the original Oeuf design by adding a sweet hardwood rail, and he threw in a changing table tray--another $200 value. No word yet on a toddler bed conversion kit, but stay tuned.

Check out Oh Dee Doh [formerly Apartment Therapy's Nursery. Have I really been so out of touch?] for a bit of making of details and some more photos.

Dude, that cherry rail on top is sweet. Nice work Burton!

And those crappy IKEA shoe things are perfect for a kids room. Nice idea.
