Just putting the finishing touches on this cradle for my niece. I made it out of red oak and the inlays in the head and footboard are maple strips milled from a tree that her father cut down in their yard earlier this year. Thought it would be a nice touch. I sanded to 220 and finished with 3 coats of cherry stain and one coat of mahogany stain (all coats wiped on) with light sanding in between. A final sanding with 600 grit and 2 coats of waterlox. I will post some more pics after the warterlox application.
