This is a Cradle that I made in 2006 and never got around to posting in my projects. It is made of white ash milled locally, with a mahogany stain and several coats of lacquer.

It was for my second Grand Child who lives in Ottawa, Ont.

I’m now in the process of making a third cradle for my oldest daughter. She is due in September.

Very nice looking. I have just finished a Changing Table and have started on a cradle to go with it. Hope it looks as good as yours does.
