I built this pendulum cradle for our first great-grandchild due in October. The first of many hopefully. Combination of Walnut and maple and designed for easy knock-down and assembly so I can ship it to my granddaughter.

Realy professional work. I like those laminated surfaces with contrasting wood colours.

Good job.
I hope you put in a “locking” mechanism to hold the cradle in place when it should not rock. As the child rolls over they will tip the bed to one side with out a lock.
Besides the shipping advantage of the “knock down feature” it also allows it to be stored flat and put away for future use. I made mine (3 of them) that way too, and because I had all grandsons there was no intermediate use it as a doll bed. They are now awaiting the next generation… the attic.
