A few years ago my wife and i were pregnant;-).
I am a furniture maker, but did a lot of other stuff in my professional life.
I decided to make a cradle for my kid(s), entirely in wood (exept the matras and patch).
There was no metal used for the construction.
For a couple of years i did nothing with wood, so the inspiration of a few years all found a way to this project;-).
If i take a look at it now, it’s maybe a little overkill…
My working space was very small (and cold), and had almost no tools. I bought a few, and rediscovered hand tools. It brougth me the joy of working wood again!
Still i’m pretty proud that i designed and created this for my kids.
My son becomes 2 years old next month, and my daughter became 10 months this week. They both enjoyed the cradle;-).
