A good friend and his wife were having a baby and I wanted to make them a cradle. They sent me a picture of one they saw in a store and liked. Their last name is Kidd. I started with some nice 2” maple from Downes and Reader near my home in Stoughton MA. Surfaced it and then cut my blanks. Turned the pieces and then carved their family name into the headboard. I put in slats and a bottom board and put in a Serta kid mattress. Then I had to disassemble it and ship it to Texas, with instructions on how to pout it back together… that was the hard part…
