A cradle I recently completed (3rd in a year) for my grandson Wade who was born last week. Made from Cherry, Maple & Paduak finished with rubbed on boiled linseed and shellac.

That’s really beautiful work, definitely an heirloom. I’m sure that your grandson’s grandson will use it some day.

Spectacular. My brother is expecting the first baby of the next generation in my family. I’m workin gon a similar cradle. Don’t think mine will turn out quite as nice as this, though.

Well done!

Beautiful work.
I too have made several cradles but the disappointment comes in that they are only used for few months. Of course girls use them for dolls later but the boys aren’t interested. Knowing this I made mine so they could be disassembled and stored completely flat awaiting the next child or next generation.

What a beautiful cradle! I love the “all wood” design where it pivots.

It looks great and well crafted especially the joints. Great design, wood combo and finish. Fine work and congrats on the new member of the family.
