Rocking Cradle With Canopy

I've made this cradle a couple of times before. It was time to make it again though when I found out a family member was in need of one for child that is expected to make a debut soon. It is made of cottonwood. I used a beeswax finish on this one.
It is a fairly simple construction. My favorite part of the whole project though is the inlaid canopy top. In my opinion, it just makes or breaks the whole cradle. The rocker assembly can be removed from the rest of the cradle if the child is still using it when it gets old enough to be capable of climbing the sides, presenting a dangerous tipping hazard.
