This cradle was made for a family friend about 15years ago. Constructed from European Oak and selected for Quarter sawn properties, it was constructed using traditional mortice and tenon joints, the end stiles being turned to provide handles for rocking the cradle. The elliptical shaped canopy was laminated over a former and final veneered with a Burr Oak veneer.
