I have 6 Great Grand Daughters, The oldest started to kindergarten this year. I am making them each a doll cradle. My Wife (Heidi) Took the fall offs from the cradles and made these “Bill Holders” for Christmas presents. She sure has an imagination, and they didn’t turn out to bad.

The Cradles are 18” long X 16” Wide X 15” High, made of 1/2” Baltic birch and painted Brown. Heidi bought dolls at the dollar store and I had to fit the cradles to them. I still have 3 more to make (almost done) should make it by Christmas. But I have one Great Grandson that I must make a “DVD Knight Stand” for by Christmas. I haven’t even started on it yet. Well that is not quite true, I have made preliminary plans, but Heidi has already marked them up for modification.
