    An early congrats on the granddaughter John! Fine start to what will be a family heirloom...
    The two cradles I have built have been the most satisfying projects I have done.
    Looking forward to seeing more update pics.

    Thanks All.
    The shop is a mess. But its always a mess. Don't see how you all keep yours so clean. But I don't have any dust collection except for a broom and dustpan.
