Built this walnut cradle for my great grandchild. The design was taken from two plans I got from the internet. I finished it on the day she was born.

Ron, the cradle is very attractive. It reminded me of the one I built for my son when he was born. We had an old 1880 drafty house, and the hood kept the drafts off. Yours is nicer than mine, as mine was made from pine. I don’t know what happened to it, with all the moves we did.

It’s nice to see one in walnut. How did you get the top curved like that?

Thanks for the comments. The top is 3/8” X 1” X 10” strips.

Beautiful cradle and you finished it with only minutes to spare, I like that. Now she will have one to use for her first child.

Is it possible that you could give me the dimensions so I could build this for my granddaughter?
