This is a Doll Cradle I built for my Daughter on her 4th Christmas.
It is made from Solid Maple then sanded to 220 then sealed and sanded again then 2 coats of deft.
Aside from the grain not matching well, this turned out exceptional!
8 years later she still proudly displays her favorite stuffed animals in it! That is the best part!

Thanks for looking!

That’s a family heirloom and looks fantastic! She will keep it forever I bet.

think it safe to say that your daughter will be displaying it for many many years to come. This is just like what a lady here asked me to make, but I have never been able to find any plans?

Thanks for the very kind comments.

Nitewalker, I think I got the plans from woodsmith magazine. I may still have them.

G’Day “slickSqueegie”,
That’s one very fine dolls cradle you made for your daughter.
Wooden toys for children are a gift of love and they last right through to the next generation, well done.
Cheers for On Top DownUnder, crowie

PS – do you remember the issue of Wood magazine were you got the plan please??
