Last year one of my daughters decided to have another child.
This gave me the excuse to build a Baby Tender cradle. (designed by Jordan Wood Boats) The boat builders of Norway would build these for their children and the tradition says they would use the wood from an old family boat somewhere in the build. These are great fun to build and gave me a chance to hone my skills in the area of clinker or lapstrake style building with traditional copper nail and rove rivits. My granddaughters name is Quinn so we named the boat the Mighty Quinn.
