This is actually a project I finished almost a year ago, but I just found the pictures of. It’s a cradle made from pine which was a surprise gift for my (then brand-new) nephew. A pretty simple project, but a lot of fun to build. I didn’t have any plans for this, I just came up with it as I went, with a little research into safe placement of the bars. With a young one like this, safety is always a concern.
My wife was kind enough to make the mattress and a few mattress covers for it (Gavin has his choice of turtles or monsters). Actually, she helped me out a lot with this project, including hand-painting Gavin’s name across the head of the cradle, and drilling some of the holes for the bars.
Thanks for looking.
