Nice looking cradle. And congrats on the new addition.

My frustration with cradles (I’ve made several) is that they only get used for a few months before the child gets to active or big for them. Then there is a storage problem, except for some girls who use them for dolls. I started making mine so they could be disassembles and stored flat…..hopefully to become an heirloom.

My wife and I have a baby on the way and I am wanting to build one for us to use while I finish building all of the baby furniture. If you dont mind me asking what was the insside demintiuons? I was thinking of using a changing pad for the matress, we have not found any cadle matresses local so I can get the measurments.
