I made this cradle for another cousin, and there first child. she said shed like red and white and smaler than the one i made for her brother. So i used cheery and hard maple and i used a basenet mattress. i bent all the legs by cutting 1/4” strips they glueing them togeather clamped in a mold one at a time. this took the most time, then i like the look i got from alternating plug and pice wood types.

Nice job on your build, could you share the hardware you used to connect the cradle to the stand? Just finished one myself and just went with dowels glued in place. It wasn’t my best choice but the one that matched the repaired piece I was working on. Thanks Pat

What a beautiful cradle! I love everything about it. This is definately an heirloom to be passed down for many generations.

the first cradle i made i just used brase bushings and stanless steal rod. but on this one i took a 3/8” sholder baring with a blot and nut . i drilled out the cardle side so the baring sat down on the sholder and on the leg side i put another brass bushing that the bolt slides in with a brass nut and washer on the out side. I like this method better, basicaly i made my own glide rocker baring, and it worked out good. i would post a pic but i didnt take one and i already gave it away. i hope this helps
