I built this cradle for my sister who had the first grandchild, and it has since been used for my two daughters and both of my sister’s kids and will be used again soon and she is expecting again soon. It is from a plan in Wood magazine and is curly maple with a oil, shellac and wax finish.

A great looking cradle.

I keep wanting to make brass plates to put all of the children’s names and birth dates on the cradle to show when it was used. I think that would be a great touch.

Great job. I love the grain. This is sure to be a family heirloom.

Thanks for posting it.
