Cradle progress report

Well after completing a kitchen cabinet build and install, I have managed to get back into a project that requires immediate attention.  My little grandchild should be here next month and I want to have the cradle done for delivery, before she is delivered. I have been working on the construction most of this week.

The design is mostly my own, as I did not like the plan that I had and I wanted the cradle to be one of a kind. The hardware for the cradle swing is from Workshop Supply Inc., in Embro, Ontario.

What I have left to do is glue up the main cradle basket, install cradle bottom assembly, plug some screw hole and do a final sanding.  Then off to finishing. The cradle is made from Cherry and will be finished a brownish cherry.

Nice project for a first time Grandpa Smile.

See you in the Workshop!
