I finished this cradle about a month ago but I wasn’t able to post it right away as it is a gift for my brother and sister-in-law. But it’s been delivered, so here goes. It’s a design from Woodcraft magazine. Crafted from solid maple. I turned the knobs and all of the spindles from solid maple also. It is held together with keyhole hangers and breaks down into 8 separate pieces for easy storage. It takes about 2 minutes to completely assemble or disassemble. The finish is three coats of General Finishes water-based poly(which I totally LOVE).

Thanks for viewing! :)
