JD that is some outstanding work. Not only do you make great bows but you do wonderful work with furniture and children. Enjoy that baby while she is small because they sure do grow up fast. Congradulations to you and your wife.

Thanks so much everyone.  I think the pics make the cradle look nicer than it is.  Most of the joinery is just, well, weird.  That little girl is a beauty though.  It's still totally surreal at this point.

Congratulations on a beautiful baby. If that cradle isn't your best work, I can't imagine how nice that would be. You did a great job, and its something to pass on when she gets to be my daughter's age..... Chris

very nice! yew is beautiful wood. looks like at least two maybe three bows in that cradle. but I am sure you will get more happiness from the cradle than the bows. that baby looks like a real sweetheart, mine is now 24, like was said previously...take every moment you can they grow up way too fast. congrats!

Juniper,

Don't worry, no bows there.  That whole tree had a health problem and was delaminating between growth rings.  I had to glue some back together just to make this project work. 

Everyone,

If my daughter has half the natural talent for archery that my wife does, I'm going to be subjected to a lot of embarassment in my life.

Congrats to you and your wife JD. Have you planned a bow for her yet :)
Nice crib too.

Josh, You had better get ready for lots of embarrassment any way :o. Once she hits about 11 years old, you will become the stupidest thing out there.  ???...but don't worry too much, they do grow out of it ;D. From now until she is 11 or so, life will be wonderful. I really miss having my little girl around to play with. She is now a federal attorney with DHS in Washington, DC. They do grow up FAST!!!  Pat
