Got a new customer that wanted a cradle rocker. I had never seen one and she sent a picture of one that was just a box and little rocker. I said Mr Google start searching and this is a U-Bild it plan. I sent for plans and this is it until she brings the color stain she wants.It is all doweled together .Just hoping the dowels have enough strength using 1/2 inch.
Cradle is Alder dowels are poplar on account I dont do the lathe

Very impressive. I have been contemplating building a cradle for my grand-daughter. This one intrigues me. I may have to give it a try.

That’s lookin good. The alder looks great and should stain up real well. it’s an easy plan to follow if you take your time.

Nice piece.

You did a great job on this! Now you have me motivated to build one for my pregnant daughter (but I need to hurry-only 3 weeks til the baby arrives).
