Here is a rocking cradle I made for my first grandchild it’s in American white oak with a Yorkshire rose motif carved into the headboard it has been passed on to the next hope it becomes an heirloom I’ve moved onto loft beds for them now I’m on with no.2 at the moment hope you like it.

Nice cradle, Trevor. I like the carved rose and turned corner posts at the top. Very classy.
