This baby cradle was made for my nephew Christopher and his girl friend Brianna. The cradle was made with California Black Oak, Honduran Mahogany, Maple, African Ebony and Black Walnut.

The frame work was made of Oak. The spindles are of maple. The The pivot pins are of Mahogany. The upright and cradle spacers are of Black Walnut and the inside retaining plate for the pivot pins are turned from Ebony.

The painting was done by my wonderful wife and a little by me.
