The cradle is curly maple with a marine plywood bottom. Hand cut dove tails. Inside dimensions made to fit the standard 18×36 cradle pad commonly available. The animal scene was painted by my wife and it is the same on both sides. Finish is Waterlox sealer with a Waterlox clear polyurethane top coat to protect the painted scene and provide resistance to liquids. The base frame and pivot pins are purpleheart finished with Watco and a Good Stuff top coat followed by wax. The ‘H’ was carved following the instructions by T. J. Mcdermott in FWW#187.
Friction latch for the pivot.
'H' is the inital for the family last name.
