Made this one to replace the one i made for my daughter inlaw,my son was hauling it the back of his truck
and it flew out wasn’t much left of it.He felt bad but it gave me a chance to build another one.
I made the rocker part so you could remove it and tare it down.made out of wallnut and butternut.

Very Nice! I haven’t seen the first one but if you are like me the second one is always best. A beauty that will be in the family for ages.

Beautiful looking cradle David. The choice of woods is pretty in contrast and I like the joinery. The whole build is excellent…awesome job.

Wow! Looks fantastic. How did you attach the spindles to the arched pieces?

I think this is the coolest cradle I’ve seen. Tons of details to look at. Great job!
