Alright, this is a Doll Cradle that i made my sister for Christmas. it is made out of some Peruvian Walnut all mortise and tenons, no dowels or anything. this finish is 4 coats of Arm-R-Seal. This project was a real challenge working on trying to get all those mortise and tenons to line up good and getting the rock to go nice. it came out really good though and i am really proud of it and think that my sister will love it. i also just shot a little video to show it to everyone and the rock that works so well. so here it goes.

so i hope that everyone liked it.

Merry **Christ**mas Denis

She’ll love it! I made one for my youngest for Xmass also. Not as nice as this one though, she got birch plywood generic cradle.
