I started this 4 years ago. Was cleaning my shop and found the parts I had cut and forgotten. Decided it had to be completed.

That is a very unique and wonderful piece of furniture. I am not sure if the idea was your own to have the rocker and cradle together, I have not seen one before, but I love it. What woods did you use?

Thank you. This is not an original idea, the concept is old. It was made so that the maid (nanny) did two chores at a time : ) .I used plywood and resawn and stained pine.
