I got these plans from a website a long time ago that offered them for free. I am sorry, I do not remember the site, but I changed several things on it anyway, so I don’t think it’s important. This is the third one I have built. I couldn’t find the plans when I started this one, so I found some measurements I have written on a scrap piece of wood for it a long time ago and went with that.
It is made of cottonwood. The last two I made, I used polyurethane on. The mother that is recieving this one though is concerned with her child chewing on it. Instead of arguing with her on the matter, I decided to just finish it with beeswax.
This particular cradle is going to my cousin’s daughter. I think that’s considered my second cousin. Anyway, I found out a few weeks ago that she’s due in October and was in a panic about getting a crib. I told them I had never built a crib, but if they’d be interested in it, I’d build them a cradle as a present to the newborn. So here it is. I dearly hope they enjoy it.
