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.

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