How to Make a Crib | Limited Tools Project


In this video I use one sheet of plywood and limited tools to build a portable crib for when we are up north at the family’s lake house. This crib allows a mother and child to safely sleep together without taking up too much mattress room or risk of smothering.


This is the third co-sleeper crib that I have made but this design is much simpler a can be completed with only a jig saw and drill. The first two that I built were very complicated and took a lot of time to complete.


I have put together a free set of plans that you can download by following the link below. (Signup for Project Newsletter Mailing list to get the file.)
