This is one of the first projects I made for some friends. The legs are connected to the post with sliding dovetails as are the rails to the cradle frame. I used heavy duty metal bearings for the swing action and I’m very impressed with how quiet it sounds when swinging. The frames are held together with ready rod And all the holes are covered with blood wood hearts. i use maple and walnut for the main woods and finished it with Danish oil.
