I have to admit that I did buy the small spindles but I did turn the end post. All is glued with biscuits and dowels. There is no metal at all except the brass knob on the stop pin.

These are really nice cradles. It doesn’t matter that some of the spindles were ‘bought’. The craftsman had to put them together into something useful and beautiful. They’re the inspiration I needed to start the one I’m building (Friday after Thanksgiving). I like the fact there are no screws or other fasteners. Well done!

Are you sure your wife was talking about the cradles (“make two as easy as one”)?

The two for one was inspired by the fact that my son had a boy and two months later my daughter had a boy also.
