Walnut cradle built for some friends, Project took about 3 months working on the weekends, It measures 40×20. The rockers, bottom ring, and top ring were bent lamination. The upper ring was bent on one form and then resawed and reglued to get the 2nd bend.

If that doesn’t become a family heirloom I don’t know what will.
