Great job Bob!
That came out splendidly.
Your daughter (and grand daughter, congratulations) are sure to love it.

And welcome to Lumberjocks.

What a beautiful cradle. Your granddaughter will sleep soundly and many years hence she will look upon it as her own daughter sleeps soundly in it and your daughter and granddaughter will have a tear in their eyes as they think about the man who made it.

That is a beautiful cradle that is sure to be treasured for generations. The craftsmanship (especially the inlays) is amazing. This looks like a ‘labor of love’ to me. Good job grandpa!
