This is a cradle for baby Aspen, my good neighbor’s new grand child. Its made of Butternut with Walnut rockers. I used finger joints on the sides and sliding dovetails for the rockers. The small “Aspen Leaf” at the crown is fret sawn from Red Oak. Pure Tung Oil was applied in two coats. The design resulted from my having viewed hundreds of antique cradles on Google Images.
