Woodworker: Vic Hubbard

Inspired by Tim Clark’s trestle cradle (Home Furniture #11), Hubbard built this cradle (22 in. deep by 42 in. wide by 43 in. tall) for a childhood friend and his wife, to celebrate the birth of their first child. He used crotch birch, flame birch, and walnut. Hubbard developed the triangular locking rocker mechanism because he wasn’t satisfied with what he’d seen on other custom cradles. The finish is tung oil. From Fine Woodworking #220
