The final assembly of this cradle was done using connector bolts so it’s easily disassembled for transport. It’s built from red oak and finished with clear polyurethane. Although it was built for our second grandson, there seems to be a tradition developing in our family (probably yours too!) that sees items like this moving from one family member to another as the need or occasion arises.

You’ve made a beautiful piece for your grandson. I’m sure that it will past down through his family. Fanily heirlooms are great.

Congrats on the grandson. That’s a great looking piece and I like that you used red oak. And that’s a great idea to add the casters. My wife and I just welcomed our first granddaughter and I’m in the process of making a rocking cradle out of red oak. The cradle you made is going to be the next project. And I agree with you about these items moving around to different family members. That’s what I was hoping for as well. Congrats and good luck.

Have your say...
