This is the cradle I made for my youngest son’s first child. Victoria Gayle Pritchard was born on Feb. 25, 2011 and I was able to complete this and deliver it before she was three months old! My wife made the bumper pads! I learned a lot about angles on this project.

Way to go, Grandad; it looks great.

Wow, what a beautiful project. Your cradle looks like it was built from the same set of plans that I used to build one for my first grandchild. The carving you added looks great!
