Black walnut cradle for a customer. Solid walnut, no fasteners used. Hand cut the dovetails and put a danish oil finish on it. A few things I’ll be changing on the next one but overall happy with the result.

Thanks for all the comments… all I would change would be where the end panels meet the sides… at the top (above the dovetails) I wouldn’t curve it as much so the corners met at the same level just to make those corners easier to sand…. if that makes any sense at all. But really, that’s a minor thing

I would love to have something as beautiful as that for my kids, of course, my kids are too big for it now. Yet, you never know what the future holds! I am sure your customer was very pleased.

Yup even the Grangirls are too big already, but I’m sure they might like a smaller version for there Doll?
