Hi,
The result of my attempt at Cradle making.
Material: cherry, beech. Finishing: hard oil. The swinging on I solved with bearings. Assembled with screws, so can be disassembled.
Thank you for viewing.
Have fun!

A beautiful piece! I love the curved sides. So much work, but the results are stunning.

Beautiful bowed shape of the fence. I like the idea of hidden bearings, sure it runs smoothly. Also good idea to put srews so you can dissamble it when not needed (until another child up to another generation). This will stay in family for a long time, I’m sure.

Really nice. Your granddaughter will look back one day and understand the love that went into making this.

For now though, she will sleep soundly (we hope) and in style!

First and foremost, congrats on the grandbaby. Grandchildren are truly gifts from God. I love this cradle and the bent rails. I can certainly see all the time and love which when into this cradle. I built cradles for both of my grandchildren, and it is truly a labor of love. Make sure you sign, date, and write a note to your granddaughter under the cradle basket as she will often look back at this passage and remember you, in many years to come.

I think you expressed yourself just fine. And that is one very fine looking cradle . Now it is time to start making Toys for her.
