« Part 1: Getting started and already have a Deadline Update Part 2 of Cradle for New Grand Daughter series no next part

Well I got the cradle finished and am just waiting for the baby to get home , she was a couple weeks early so they wanted to keep her for a while to make sure everything is OK with her and she should be home today or tomorrow at the latest.
I have some more photos on my phone but can’t seem to get them to transfer to the PC so I took the finished photo with my digital camera and was able to get it to transfer with no problem.
If I were to do this again I would not use pine since it stains really badly (it was the only thing I had easy access to with a short deadline) and would start it much sooner to have more time to make it better.
There are a lot of little things I am not really happy with but my Daughter says it is better than the ones in the store because Grandpa made it. It could use a lot more sanding and a better stain finish but at least it has a Lot of Love put into it , so I guess that count’s .
