That is the first “mission” style I have seen. It looks good.
One little problem that comes up with these free swinging cradles is some method of stopping the swing when it is not wanted. As the child gets bigger and the move to one side of the bed it tends to tilt and trap them in the corner. I have used a dowel pin between the crib and the end posts to stop this from happening. You might consider adding this feature if you haven’t already done so.

Carl,

Excellent work. The finish looks terrific. At first clance I thought it was pine becasue it is so light colored. Nice work with the dye.

Very nice! Is this for a family member? If so, they will treasure it almost as much as the child it is meant to hold.

Great work!
