This is as sophisticated a piece of furniture as any that we make. The legs must be laid out and mortised in pairs, still joined together lengthwise, then carefully cut apart on a bandsaw to achieve the taper. There is a lot more hand work involved after the taper is cut, because the pieces will not go through machines anymore. The effort is evident in the results. All of the components are joined with mortise and tenons. There are 84 mortise and tenon joints on each of these cribs. As with all of our cribs, there is an additional stretcher that can be added in place of the drop side when use as a crib is finished. This allows the piece to become an attractive youth bed or a small settle. The work of C.R. Mackintosh was an inspiration for both the design and the color choices in this piece. We have achieved a distinctly individual style with the form, and allowed for any atmosphere, from sophisticated to whimsical, with the range of color choices.
Using our aniline dye technique, we have left all of the grain and wood texture evident in any of the colors. This is a far cry from the painted finish on most cribs. The dyes are top coated with the highest quality Water Resistant Lacquer and rubbed to a beautiful satin patina and a wonderful feel.
