Following my dad’s footsteps, I modified a design and built a cradle for our 1st grandchild due in May. The pads & things require one of two basic dimentions 32×16 or 36×18, I went with the larger. All joined, pegged & glued not a screw in it.

Very nice, looks like one I wanted to build for my granddaughter…ended up Mom & Dad didn’t have room for one in their little place…bummer for me :>( But the design looks very much like the one I bought plans for, I hoping by the next one they’ll have the space. This one looks very good, I like the square slats instead of the round ones everyone else uses. Well done.

That came out nice. I built one for our son a few years back. It was a fun project.

Very nice. I keep thinking about building one of these, but I think I’ll wait for the next grandchild.
