I found out my daughter was pregnant when she showed me some pictures of baby cradles and said she wanted me to make her one. Much to my thrill of the news, this was the finished result made out of Oak. I got it done in time to welcome my 9 lbs. 8 oz. grandson into this world!

Looks like a really nice cradle. Do you have a brand or did you laser the “Handcrafted ….” on the cradle?

Fine looking cradle, great design and great build. It will be an heirloom piece for sure. Great work!
