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.

You’ve created a beautiful cradle. That double bend sounds quite interesting and challenging.

That really is a beautiful cradle and it looks like it must have been a difficult piece to build. Nice eork.

I really do like this, especially considering we are expecting our third very shortly. Where did you get the plans?
