Turning a Baby Cradle

cradle is a traditional baby holder. It's designed to hold the baby while you have your hands full. Often it has rockers so that you can get a little motion going to help keep the baby occupied and maybe even convince them to sleep.

Creating a cradle from wood turning components is a very satisfying project. If you've got a child or a grand-child coming, this might be the project for you!

 
In this project, JoHannes Michelsen shows us how he made a baby cradle for his new grandson.

He takes us through all the steps needed to create the legs, the base, the spindles and the rails. Then he assembles the crib using these components to make one of the most stunning cradles we've ever seen!

You may never made a cradle yourself but following this project will give you a great appreciation of the work and dedication that were involved in making this baby cradle.
