Prepare the legs and rails of the crib by cutting six pieces of wood that are approximately 54 inches long. Use a jigsaw to cut out the actual length. Sand the legs down, and then smooth any rough edges. To make sideboards for the crib, assemble 51.5-inch pieces of wood. Create a pattern, and then create a life-sized version.

Take about 30 pieces of board, which are about 1.5-inches in width and trim the slats. After the sawing is complete, cut mortises into the side rails using a mortise. Glue the slat and the sides together. To make panels, assemble more 1.5-inch thick pieces of wood.

Using T- nuts, make the crib adjustable in height. Use brackets to fasten the legs of the crib before testing it for longevity and sturdiness. If necessary, stain the crib with a desirable color, and leave it out for a number of days to dry before laying the baby in it.
