The crib is made by El Greco (I personally think this will bias our boy towards a taste for ouzo as an adult). The build seems very nice, and the assembly was pretty straightforward. The fit and finish where the pieces join are clean and the tolerances are pretty tight. Of course, all of this factored in to the original suggestion of safety (the wife did her homework!), but it was nice to see it come together as expected.
After much research on safety and aesthetics (and a worthwhile detour into exploring a possible custom built option), the wife chose a crib from Land of Nod for our coming bundle of baby-boy joy.
So it got here yesterday, delivered by a private courier since we are now out of reach for Land Of Nod's "local" delivery.
All of this to say that both Land of Nod (a Crate and Barrel company) and El Greco (who we also called on to inquire about crib parts) showed an exceptional level of positive customer service, at least per my current standards.
And now I guess I have to say that we are in no way compensated directly by the retailer or manufacturer for this post.
