Baby Rocking Cradle

When I first made this I realised I was being overly zealous when it came to the size. If I kept it to its original size which I can’t remember now what that was you can easily place a real baby in it. I had to cut the length to half and that’s all I remember at the time, so what’s half of the original I don’t know and I can’t measure it as its gone to its new owner.

Anyhow I used radiate pine and stained it with Azura oak using a mixture of BLO and spirit based stain to stop any blotching effect. Finally I finished it off with a few coats of orange shellac.
