These are for our Associate Pastor’s two little girls. They will accommodate a 6” long doll. One end of the pine slab I used to make the cradles was blued pine. I had just enough to make the head boards. I found the design on Steve Good’s website, Scrollsaw Workshop. http://www.scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com/. I finshed them with three coats of high gloss poly.

Thanks for looking!!

These are beautiful, Lee! The blue pine was a perfect choice. (By the way, I didn’t even know the species existed!) The girls are going to be very happy with these, and rightfully so. Well done.

Awesome build Lee….and well timed, was just sitting here on the porch watching the hummingbirds play around the feeders. Going to be some happy young ladies at your pastor friends house…nice one my friend.

Beautiful work for what sounds like a very worthy cause. I’m sure the delight in the little girls’ eyes will be your greatest reward. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the link explaining what makes the pine turn this color. Interesting, how nature provides us with variety.

Thanks Dave, the material was 3/8” thick and I cut through two thicknesses at once to save time. I had to be careful of blade drift on my scroll saw.
