This was my first attempt at fine woodworking. When my daughter informed me that I would be a grandfather for the first time, I boldly said, ” I’ll build you a cradle”.
She was decorating the Baby’s room with Noah’s Ark stuff. I set off looking on the internet to see if I could find plans for a Noah’s style cradle.
I found a site with the plans to make this cradle. I ordered the plans and when they arrived, they were photocopies of a project in some magazine. The instructions were very detailed and the pictures were pretty good so I decided to give it a go.
Two thousand dollars layer and set myself up in my basement with a brand new 14” Delta Band saw, 6”X 48” Delta Jointer and 13” two speed portable Delta Planner. I already had a Craftsman Radial Arm Saw and most of the hand tools I’d need.
I surprised myself and ended up with these results!
