Page 70 - The 3/4" dowels that the cradle swings on are correctly sized at 1 1/4" long. These dowels are glued into the ends (A) in Step 1 under "Assemble the cradle" on page 72. The 1 1/2"-long dowels specified in Step 8 on page 73 are used temporarily to align the spacers (D) with the supports (E) during glue-up. The extra 1/4" allows you to pull the dowels back out of the hole after the glue dries.
