NO DROP SIDE....NO DROP SIDE....NO DROP SIDE..
NO MORE DROP SIDE CRIBS WILL BE BUILT BY US. BOTH SIDES ARE FIXED, WITH NUMEROUS HEIGHT ADJUSTMENTS ON THE MATTRESS.
Drop side hardware has become so cheap, we will no longer use it.....Most European cribs do not have drop sides. Drop sides are illegal in then USA now.
EVERY PIECE IS MADE WITH THE SAME CARE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL THAT IS FOUND IN OUR REPRODUCTIONS AND ORIGINAL DESIGN ARTS & CRAFTS FURNITURE. THE GRAIN IS CAREFULLY MATCHED, THE HANDMADE CONSTRUCTION IS TRADITIONAL MORTISE & TENON, AND THE FINISH IS UNSURPASSED.
THIS CRIB MEETS AND EXCEEDS ALL FEDERALLY MANDATED STRENGTH AND COMPONENT SIZE GUIDELINES.
IT TAKES A STANDARD CRIB MATTRESS THAT IS AVAILABLE ANYWHERE. IT CONVERTS TO A SMALL BED / SOFA.
The Mackintosh Crib is an attempt to inject as much original styling into a crib as Federal regulations allow. As with all of our cribs, we have replaced the unsightly original hardware with hidden fasteners. The fixed sides are attached with hidden, bed rail and keyhole hangers. We have used the best Ash lumber available.
The wood is hard and strong and the entire crib is solid and battleship tough. The lighter color of the Ash allows us to use a wide palette of colors to suit any taste. Some find the design strength and colors of the traditional "Mission" look to be too masculine. Whatever your choice, this Ash crib will be a stunning focal point in any nursery.
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.
WE WILL SEND WOOD SAMPLES FOR A CHOICE OF COLOR WHEN THE CRIB IS PURCHASED OR A DEPOSIT IS MADE.

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 one side when use as a crib is finished. This allows the piece to become an attractive youth bed or a small settle. The quality wood, careful construction, and durable hardware allow this crib to last through many generations of continuous use.
THIS LISTING IS FOR A COMPLETED ITEM THAT MUST STILL BE FINISHED IN THE COLOR THE CUSTOMER WANTS.
