This is a cherry cradle I built for my daughter who was expecting her first child and my second Grandchild four years ago and has since been used for two more grand children.

Nicely done; if that doesn’t rock her to sleep – what will?

Nice job! I built that same cradle a few years back. Yours came out great.

Love it. A cradle was my first project ever. it got me into the hobby. Mine is in a much lower league than this. Only had a couple tools hand me down tools and little know how. Always have liked cradle projects for that reason. Well done.
