Built this craddle when my grandson was born. It is made with blued pine I cut, milled into boards, dryed, and made it into the finished piece (from standing tree to furniture). Makeing it even more rewarding.

Absolutely beautiful !!! And the fact that you were with it from tree to finished cradle makes it even more of a family Heirloom that will be passed down from parent to child for generations long after we are gone !!

Wish I had the skill to do that for my two grandsons. Very cool and well made.

Great job on the cradle. It looks like you adapted the same plan that I used to make cradles for our twin grandchildren last spring: I love the fact that you went from tree to finished project. I haven’t gotten to that stage yet, although I have looked longingly at a few trees in the back of my yard.
