Robert P from Houston, TX Posted June 24, 2007
I recently purchased a set of plans from you for U-Build's Heritage Cradle. I spent at least one day out of each weekend over a period of about three months working on the cradle and managed to complete it just 10 days before it's new occupant arrived. She weighed in at only 4 pounds, 14 ounces, is now about three months old, and still sleeps in it every night.I found the plans for the cradle to be very straight forward and accurate. The only place that gave me a problem was the width of the apron that frames the front of the hood. For some reason, cutting it from the plans caused it to be about 3/8 too narrow. I glued a piece to each end and shaped it and it looked just fine.My construction methods were a little different from those shown on the plans. I used biscuits instead of dowels wherever possible. These make extremely strong joints and have the added advantage of not showing through the wood. I did use dowels to join the base to the rockers and rocker brace, and added dowels to the joint between the cradle and base rather than rely on just a glue joint. Using an adjustable drill guide will help with the 8 degree angle needed to drill the dowel holes thru the base into the cradle.I used cherry wood instead of pine and finished it with a red mahogany stain and polyurethane semi gloss. The cradle has received many compliments on its shape and proportions, and I feel like it will become an heirloom to this new family.Thanks for a good design and good set of plans.

I  had a problem with the apron. The plan is simply wrong, and it is indeed 3/8 of an inch too short. I also used dowels to fasten the top to the rocker bottom, I don't trust the glue to hold it for a long time. I used cherry, but finished it in a cherry stain, and it it is beautiful.

I found most of the plans easy to use. Trying to duplicate the cuts on the end pieces would be easier if the plans included the angles of the cuts.
