All i can say right now is i hope if there is more great grand baby’s ,they would be willing to share lol , it was a challenge having never done anything like it before,butt i love the way it turned out ,its solid cheery put together with pegs i turned out of cheery and tight bond glue , and the pivot point is garage door rollers lol . legs put on with pegs for dismantle . let me know what you think .

Looks awesome! My father built a similar one for his grandchildren with the intention of it being passed down from generation to generation. On the base, put an engraved brass plate for the name/date of birth for each grandchild that sleeps in it!

Good job, turning those identical spindles must have been difficult. I like the fancy stretcher.

Very nice work on the Cradle . And if there is one Grand Child there will be more ( I have 13 of them ) so if it comes to the point of needing a second cradle made , Grand Pa will be more than Happy to do it I am sure.

Have your say...
