One side glued, one to go. Here is what it will look like (minus a side, and finish):

I still need to add caps on the sides (probably, though it wouldn't matter if I decided not to, I guess). I goofed and routed a 1/8" roundover on top, so I will have to run the side panels through my tablesaw jointer jig to get rid of those, if I decide a cap is necessary. That will also make sure that the cap fits tight with no gaps. We'll see. It's pretty optional, at this point, unless I decide I want it there to reinforce the top rail where the bolt comes in (just a little more thickness surrounding that bolt).

The first side panel is currently gluing. Those two long skinny pieces you see on either side (right and left) are not part of the crib. I think the technical, woodworky term for them is "cauls." Basically, I am using them to make sure the top and bottom rails end up square. It took a little bit of thinking to figure out how the pipe clamps needed to sit relative to each other & the wood to make it work out:

One more side to glue, then some drilling & cleanup.
