Well this project is a blast from the past. I built this for wife when we were expecting our first son about ten years ago. it is constructed with thin strips of wood stapled and glued with epoxy onto a form. The accents, rails, transom and rockers are all out of mahogany. The plans were from a book titled “The Expecting Father’s Cradle Boat Book”. A good friend of mine had started the project cutting out all the forms and mounting them and laying a single strip of wood then he gave up. Several years later when I decided to start mine I was able to use the forms he had originally cut out. I still vividly remember pulling the hundreds of staples from the wood strips after the epoxy had set. I have many more photos I will post in a blog about the project.
