    That's a marvelous piece of work. And I agree, it should stay as it is, only waxed, but the Daddy's idea will most likely be what is done.
    Light wood with white is classic, would look lovely in a baby's room with bright colors as accents.

    it is beautiful and I love this color as well...BUT how does one get the baby out of it? it appears the sides do not lower, nor can the bed tray be lifted higher....I am short with short arms, I could never get a tiny infant out of this bed!

    Just one minor, little bitty thing...have him measure the width between the bars in their widest stretch.

    I don't want to rain on your parade, but there should not be any spaces larger than ...well, here is what the Internet says, among other things.........

    Slats should be no more than 23/8" apart (about the width of a soda can).
    Corner posts should not be higher than 1/16".

    That is a very beautiful crib. But I have to agree, when you are using such lovely wood, would be a shame to cover it up!!

    It's a beauty, what a lovely bed for a little one. Made me smile...my husband is a clever fella, works in metal and can build almost anything. Trouble is it always has that heavy industrial look....probably bombproof, but pretty, or fluid design....not a chance:)

    He's done a beautiful job. I'm guessing you're in charge of the quilt to go in that crib. :wink:

    Such beautiful craftsmanship!

    I agree with the light colors for a baby. Also, remember little ones after a while chew on things, especially when they start to stand up, so you may want to use that in your "stain or not to stain" debate, at least for now.
