My cousin asked me to build a cradle for her fist great-grandchild. I copied the one I made for my own children almost thirty years ago. I found some beautiful oak at a local supplier of craft wood. I guess you could call it curly oak. It gave it a very nice look. I delivered it unfinished to Willis TX to be completed by a very proud grampa (Mike).
