Heritage Cradle Kit (No. KW666M)

Heritage Cradle KitProject KW666M

An Early-American Classic!

Small, light and sturdy, this Heritage Cradle is an early-American classic. Featuring rounded edges and corners, handholds that make it easy to move around and a hood to keep drafts and glare out, the cradle rocks freely with the touch of a toe, but the recurved rockers make it almost impossible to tip. Its easy to see why the design has been popular since the eighteenth century.

U-Do Kit
Grown, Cut and Made in the USA

Its also simple and inexpensive to build. The Heritage Cradle kit includes 16.32 board feet of hand-selected maple, plus a U-Bild plan to show you how to trace, cut and assemble. The cradle is built from just 14 pieces, and all of the curved cuts (including the optional designs on the hood apron and footboard) are traced from full-size patterns. Construction is simpletrace the pieces onto wood, cut everything out, sand and assemble using glue and dowels. Once the cradle is put together, apply finish of choice.

The completed cradle measures 33 inches long by 27 inches wide by 27 inches tall. Theres room for a 13- by 28-inch bassinet pad inside, or a simple mattress can be made for a more custom fit.
