    purpleheart & white oak cradle

    I modified the original plan for this cradle found in Woodsmith magazine. The cradle uses a standard size cradle mattress. I don't own a lathe so the side frame spindles where replaced with slats. I turned the knobs on the drill press.

    Beautiful cradle Dewayne. I built the same one out of cherry & BE maple for my granddaughter. It was a fun project.

    Note to self: The new guy Dewayne knows his way around a woodshop.

    You don't fool around when you make something, do you? Excellent work.
