I built this cradle 19 years ago before my daughter's birth. It has been making the rounds ever since and is now preparing for its 23rd baby. All of the names and birthdates of the babies who've shared it are engraved on the ends. A few years ago, it held my oldest step-son's daughter.
It was made of western cherry. I had a $3 black & decker circular saw, a sears router, a block plane, drill, and belt sander.

Thats assume, it must give you great pride every time you see the names of all the past occupants.

Wow I like that style. I suppose you can only have young and immobile children in here or when they stood up they might tip out?

Looks nice!

Well I have to say, I'd love to have a piece with that kind of happy history. My fiancee wants me to make a cradle for ours, when the time comes. Maybe I'll take a page out of your book and try to start a tradition. Thanks for sharing.
