Excited to become grandparent. Built from a photo. Started from rough curly maple that had to be resawn! Did floating tenons for first time to attach rockers. Front cradle side can be easily removed a turned to attach to back side to then use as a long rocker when baby outgrows cradle.

Very clever. Your daughter (or son) will love it. I would like to see the back to understand how the chair back is supported.

Nice project! It’s a good idea to have the cradle convert into a long rocker.

Very nice, I’ve seen this style rocker in Amish furniture shops in Indiana and Pennsylvania. Very practical, but for short time use. After the baby out grows it, can be used for potted plants or cooler, and enjoy a good book.

Always loved that design.

You did a great job on yours, beautiful. . .

Just looking at that gives you a warm feeling, brings up old memories, even if you never had one of these, or even ever have seen one of these before.

A piece of art. . .

Thanks. Sorry no back pic because already given. The sides of the chair back are part of the left and right vertical pieces of the chair so seems pretty solid.

Nice project! It s a good idea to have the cradle convert into a long rocker.

- sras

Thanks. I kept being told a baby would likely use it only a few months. Since so much effort to make I thought the conversion feature would prolong its utility.
