It’s totally fine to outfit the den in your bachelor pad with a cheap coffee table from Ikea, but when it comes to the crib for a baby, you’re going to want it to be made out of something sturdier than Swedish cardboard.
That’s why when Reddit user Mergs21 heard he was going to have a new niece, he got right to work on a customized crib for her, complete with an adorable animal-themed back panel!
He started small, crafting the animals that would be his niece’s best friends during her crib years.
What a crew!
Now for the jungle-themed background.
The process of applying pieces of veneer — in this case with colors — to form a pattern is called marquetry.
