Time-lapse video: assembling the crib

Instead of skiing last weekend, I assembled a crib for my daughter to-be. She’s scheduled to arrive around May 5.  I still couldn’t put down my video cameras, so rather than film a mogul run, I did a time-lapse of the furniture assembly.

The video above took about 2 hours to capture. I used an iPhone app called TimeLapse, which I typically employ for sunsets and cloud formations.

I’ve come to expect maddening directions (or lack thereof) when it comes to assembling products, but aside from having three different sizes of screws that were nearly indistinguishable, the crib was relatively straightforward to construct.

I suppose this is one of my first acts of parenting!
