When folks post here asking for baby cradle plans JOAT
typically advises them to make a rocking chair instead.
Probably good advice.
However when looking for cradle plans I ran across several
people selling these:
It's a cradle with glider movement, rather than rocking
movement, that converts to a gliding Love Seat.
Looks like a winner to me.
At those prices it doesn't pay to make one instead of
buying, but this is rec.woodworking, not biz.woodworking
so I thought I'd ask if anyone knows where there may be
plans for making one like it. Barring that I may just buy one
and duplicate it in cherry or curly maple and with good
I also remember that once upon a time there were plans
for a 'double rocking cradle'. That's my word for a treslte
cradle with the trestle on rockers linstead of flat on the floor.
They look like they would fall right over dumping the kid
on the floor, but folks who made them (and I no longer am
in contact with them) say they were not unstable. I think
the motion would be similar to a glider.
But I haven't been able to find plans for those either.
Any help is appreciated.
Oh, and before you ask, no I didn't knock anyone up.
I will soon be an uncle.
