This is a pine, hand dove-tailed doll cradle I designed for my youngest granddaughter. My favorite projects are those that involve making things for kids. The expression of joyful delight on their faces is priceless.

The dovetails make this one a notch above others I’ve seen…and by hand…..great job.

Very nice – your granddaughter is lucky to have such a granddad! You are right – the greatest pleasures are making thing for others, especially kids!
