My Dad made this 30 yrs ago when our first child was born. She wasn't his first grandchild but she had the good timing to be born after he started woodworking as a hobby. His hobby didn't last long so this is one of the few remaining signs of it.
The cradle has traveled around from Bradenton to Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Miami, Memphis, Searcy, Atlanta, Warrenton and Dover.
It was the first bed for our daughters and a bunch of nieces and nephews. It is now getting ready for a trip to Philadelphia for our first grandchild!
