Crib and Cradle Plans

A baby cradle is an heirloom just waiting to be made. Make a gift with free crib or cradle plans that will be treasured, not only for the coming years, but also for generations.

Baby cribs and cradles are easy to customize to blend with existing decor. Wood choice, stain and finish easily make your crib or cradle coordinate with the room's furniture, and the versatility of styles available will allow the craftsman to find a design that fits the family lifestyle.

Crib and baby cradle plans should follow the guidelines of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. They should have fixed sides instead of drop-sides. Following the guidelines ensures safety for baby.

With all the choices available for cradles and cribs, there is certainly a style that is just right for that new addition. All you add is a little wood and a lot of love.
