A new arrival deserves a handmade baby cradle. Whether the cradle is for your baby, a relative or a friend, a handcrafted baby cradle shows your deep love and affection. You can make that special gift for your baby with the help of one of these cradle plans.

Always read the cradle plans carefully and make sure that there is enough information provided for you to be able to complete the project - before you invest in materials. Some of the plans are excellent, giving a great deal of instruction in text, pictures and drawings while other plans are only drawings and still others are only sketches.

As well, some of the cradle plans, require a woodworking shop that is outfitted with a good selection of stationary power tools such as lathes, shapers, jointers and thickness planers.

These baby cradle plans are for the intermediate to expert woodworker.
