Two cradles, done for two grand daughters a few years apart. The doweled cradle is from a plan from Wood Magazine, but it was presented with slatted sides. I wanted dowels. It was a case of not knowing what I was getting into. Turned out well, though. I don’t think I’ve yet started out on a magazine plan that I’ve done without significantly changing.
The second cradle is of birdseye maple, an American Woodworker design by Simon Watts, in a knock-down design of wedged tenons and a sling bed with a covered board laid in it. Both were much appreciated by my daughters. I also crocheted baby blankets for the little ones. There are advantages to being a grandma woodworker.
