Project Information

When I first got involved in woodworking, Norm Abram was just coming on the scene as Americas' carpenter. He then made his move into his woodworking shop, and I was hook. I couldn't get enough of his weekly TV shows; I purchased every book he wrote; attend some of his meet n greets; even sent for some of his video tapes with fabrication plans included

When I first got involved in woodworking, Norm Abram was just coming on the scene as Americas' carpenter. He then made his move into his woodworking shop, and I was hook.

He was definitely a driving force for me as well as so many other budding woodworkers. This cradle was made in the early 1990's, from information gleaned from Norms' shop lessons. The cradle is made from solid Cherry lumber. The glued up panels for the four sides were hand jointed, and assembled using biscuit joinery which was debuted by Norm and just being made available to the weekend woodworker. The joints are as tight today as when first assembled a testament to the joinery system. The piece was finished with several coats of hand rubbed Tung oil. The stand-in for Vanna White is my "much better half" who has been my biggest fan and greatest supporter :)
