Baby cradle for our new granddaughter. Built with mahogany stem, keel and transom, cedar planking and oak frames. Davits are oak. Plans and design purchased from Jordan Wood Boats. I loved this project!

That is the coolest cradle I have seen. It makes me wish I had an excuse to build something similar. (almost)

Lordy that is an amazing piece of workmanship Clung! The attention to detail is terrific. Very lucky granddaughter indeed. Is she seaworthy (the boat, not your granddaughter of course lol)? Beautiful job on this project, and welcome to LJ’s!
