Sax, I just finished a cradle a few months ago. The biggest tip I can give you is to look around for a mattress you want to put in it. Get the dimensions of the mattress and then make your build so the mattress will fit. I made mine a little small and had to modify mattress to fit in it.

There are several pendulum types out there, plans are easy to find.

I have built a few cradles and I built one for my niece and nephew a few years ago. I went to Babys R Us and found a large cradle mattress and designed the cradle around it. I chose to do a glider style so the movement wouldn’t startle the babies. If I can find some pics I will upload them.

Not to late. Tks, any suggestion/idea are always well accepted. In the meantime i prepared the “twin cradle ” for my nephew. For the moment i made the box: 600mm wide by 1000mm long. Now i am preparing the rocking support.
I will post the photos when ready. Tks

Have your say...
