Cradle I built for my youngest daughter. I was lucky to find these beautiful wide silver maple boards to construct body of cradle. Base is cherry and pivot points are ebony.

Actually what I would really like is a full set of plans! Seems like you have a few more interested parties as well.

Ever thought about how it might be taken apart once the kid gets older?

I just can't seem to figure out the right layout for compound dovetails. I have an 8 degree slope. Do you have some easy tips? I currently have my four parts square with a but joint… on the shelf.
I love your big tails. Its a nice proportion with your design. Thanks!
