Early American BABY CRADLE

Here is the orginal article straight from
Small Furniture Designs

Project by Alan F. Kelsey

BUILT to the dimensions given, this makes an attractive and somewhat different baby cradle; cut the dimensions in half and you have an equally pleasing doll cradle. Start the construction by gluing-up the lumber in the square to the sizes shown at lower left. Next, cut the compound miters. setting the miter gage at 75-1/2 degrees and tilting the saw table 43-1/4 degrees. These are the proper angles for a side tilt of 15 degrees. Bevel all bottom edges 15 degrees, and then band and scroll saw all curved edges. Assemble the sides and ends with screws under wood plugs. The size of bottom is taken from the work, and overhangs 1 inch all around, moulded with style B moulding head knife. The rockers are a straight job of band sawing, and are mounted with screws and wood brackets.
