At long last the cradle is finished! – only 9 weeks late but she seems to really enjoy it!
Getting the curve on the top took a couple of attempts – Thankfully, my wife is patient and creative. She also upholstered the top rail. This was my first project (other than the interim cutting board I did while making the 40 spindles). If I were do something like this again, there are definite items I would do differently – but – it looks great!

Very nice Bob, it turned out fantastic, turning 40 spindles must have taken a bit of time.

She looks like she approves of it too!
