I am a longtime subscriber to your magazine and have a new grandchild on the way. I would like to build a cradle. Do you have plans?

If you’d like to build a baby cradle, we have plans for a rocking cradle in an article from 1984: A Spalted-Oak Cradle. The wooden cradle has a rustic look, and each one you build will be unique. But the basic design is the same. And instead of using stain and varnish, you can simply finish the cradle with Tung oil and it will look great.



Click on the “Image Gallery” link in the article and look at all three photos/illustrations. The last one is a diagram that shows how the corners are pinned together.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own baby cradle – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
