Trestle Cradle Vintage Woodworking Plan.

R14-3621 - Trestle Cradle Vintage Woodworking Plan.
Putting baby to bed can be a true test of patience. But with any job, the going is always easier with the right tool. For speeding baby off to dreamland, this cradle is the right tool. Your baby will love the gentle swinging motion of trestle style suspension. And, once awake, the little one will be able to look at the world through the open sides. This is a good project for beginning woodworkers because there are only eight different parts to cut out. Standard-size lumber and wood dowels are inexpensive and parts assemble with screws and glue.

There are two ways to build this cradle. One, shown in the photo, has the full rocking action. It has the pivot suspension and the rocking stand. It has a very easy and pleasant action. The effect on the infant is similar to that produced by a cradle suspended from the ceiling with 4 foot cords. The second design may be preferred if you have other small children who might rock the cradle hard enough to upset it. This design has a stand with flat footing on the floor. This will resist upsetting much better yet will allow the basket to continue limited rocking from its pivot points at the top. This is a woodworking plan we purchased in a wholesale lot. Visit our FAQ page for a full definition.
