Our third child, Finnegan, is scheduled to be born tomorrow 4/18/16. My wife, son, daughter, and myself each chose a stock for this cradle. The smorgasbord of thicknesses and lengths made this project quite difficult. I took it one piece at a time, lost my cool a few times, but in the end, am very proud of what I have accomplished. Especially for a relatively amateur woodworker. Thank you for looking.

Awesome job! I’m very proud of you and I know Finnegan will have nothing but sweet dreams in his “built with love” cradle.
