This is a christmas present for my 18 month old niece. The primary wood is butternut that I milled from a tree off my parents land. The bottom of the cradle is birch plywood. The finish is a varnish/ tung oil blend (5 coats). Thanks for looking.

Nice job! Are the corners glued or fastened and glued?
