The cradle is curly maple with a marine plywood bottom. Hand cut dove tails. Inside dimensions made to fit the standard 18×36 cradle pad commonly available. The animal scene was painted by my wife and it is the same on both sides. Finish is Waterlox sealer with a Waterlox clear polyurethane top coat to protect the painted scene and provide resistance to liquids. The base frame and pivot pins are purpleheart finished with Watco and a Good Stuff top coat followed by wax. The ‘H’ was carved following the instructions by T. J. Mcdermott in FWW#187.
Friction latch for the pivot.
'H' is the inital for the family last name.

Can I get contact information for Mr. Bilich? I like the design of the baby basinet in FWW and would like some basic dimensions, etc for making this design. I love the fact that you can take the cradle off of the stand and still rock it.
Mr. Bilich has great skill and a good eye for design. I'd like to try and replicate this beautifully crafted piece.

New member to Fine Woodworking and was searching for a cradle plan for our new baby to come in February. Would it be possible to borrow yours if you want.
can you give me any more details on the cradle. Really like the design. Walt
Nice job Dan,
We have a grandchild coming in June. I may borrow some of your ideas, if that is OK.
