This is the first of 2 baby cradles to come out of the shop in the last 6 months. This is Aubrey’s cradle, her mother wanted solid walnut so that is what papaw did. It is a rather simple design and one of those project that looks better in person than in a picture but i hope all you LJ’s like it.

In my opinion this is 100 kinds of awesome – you give yourself too little credit.

Gorgeous cradle, especially like the ribbon and the design on the feet. Wonderful family heirloom for sure.

However, I do have one question (in the name of constructive criticism only).
Aren’t those sharp corners at the tops of the peaks a bit dangerous if the little one stands up and puts their little hand on it?
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE it. The crisp peaks give it that awesome look. Just something that popped into my head is all.

I do see your point about the sharp peaks, but generally a cradle is not used by the time a little one is able to stand. They are not really deep enough for standing. Thanks to all of you for your comments and had a great time buildingths project
