Cradle was designed to either sit on the ground and rock, or in the stand, pivoting on the tiger maple hearts.
I designed the solid walnut cradle to either sit on the ground and rock, or in the stand, supported by the two tiger maple hearts. The cradle is about 37 inches long and 24 inches wide at the top (bottom fits a standard 18X36 inch cradle mattress). Wedged tenons hold the rails to the headboard and footboard securely without any mechanical fasteners. The cradle bottom is also solid wood; ship-lapped sections allow for wood movement. Maple wedges in the stand are removable for storage. Clear Waterlox finish.
Wedged tenons hold the rails to the headboard and footboard securely without any mechanical fasteners.
The maple heart is about an inch thick and it drops into a "V" in the stand. The cradle pivots on the point of the heart, and the angle of the "V" limits the amount of sway. The stand is very strong, held together by double tenons and removable wedges.
