Our fourth grandchild arrived a little over a week ago-But before I could finish this cradle. H-26 1/2”,W-28 1/4,L-33”. I searched a while for different cradle designs-then took elements I liked and came up with this design.If I make any more I’ll probably alter the width as 28 1/4 is plenty wide-my daughter likes it though because she thinks our granddaughter can be here longer. I don’t recall the radius of the rockers but that will get adjusted too-It seemed to rock well in development stages but in the final edition it flattens out sooner than I would like-I may remake the rockers at some point.-Alan

Nice build for your grandchild. I love cradle builds and I’m currently working on my second cradle for our second grandchild. You did an excellent job with this cradle…..nice design and build. Enjoy that little one.
