I built this cradle for my wifes cousen. all of the wood for this cradle was recycled, walnut from my scrap bin, and all of the oak was a pile of table parts i got on line cheep. I did buy the dowels and the hardware. This project has been in my head for a few years just waiting to get out, so when they told use all they were excpecting it took me 2 weeks start to finish. the only problem is its 7 months early. so the only thing is that this design is that it is a bet on the heavy so to make it easyer to transport i made it come apart easy. to do this i took a pair of bed rail fasteners cut them down and recessed them so they slip them togeather and powend them down and tight. the bed its self is 18”x36” and 2” thick, it stands 35” tall and 50” long.
