    Granddaughter's Cradles - DONE

    Since I am posting pics, here are the cradles for my granddaughters, at least where I am at this point. I still have to make the rockers and stain them, but what the hey, they are only for christmas, and there is LOTS of time yet

    The first is made from rift sawn red oak and the second one is from some of Larrys great Chocolate (thanks again Bud)

    Nice Flatwork there Tom Hey hows the kitchen doing? Did i miss the post of pics or something. You seem to have a lot of space in your shop suddenly, tells me the kitchen is done or am i wrong?

    Some lucky girls gonna be very happy this Christmas.
    I could see that chocolate had a certain persons name on it. Why would you want to go to any old lumber yard when you have one up the road.
    cheers

    You must of missed it Rob, it's been done for months
    Well I keep finding projects that keep pulling me away from the kitchen. These cradles are the last of them then back to the staining. That is taking FOREVER I will NEVER use gel stain again, I have grown a great dislike for it. But thanks for asking Rob, I will be back on them SOON

    Thanks for the comments all, these should be nice when done. They are full size cradles and they held my weight when standing in them so I don't think the girls will be able to do much damage even if they try
