First off I want to thank William for giving me the idea for this cradle. I coppied his general idea when building this canopy cradle. My daughter is due in six monthis and when I saw William’s cradle I knew I wanted to build one. I started with rough cut oak and planed it to thickness. I then glued my boards and ran them through the drum sander. I screwed all joints together and then plugged the countersunk holes woth oak dowells. I stained with golden oak stain. I think I am going to finish with a varnish but I want to find something that is not toxic so I will have to check in to that. It has been a fun project but a little out of my comfort zone as I mostly do turing projects. I guess the final test will be to see if my daughter likes it as I have not told her I am building it.
