No plans yet, but we went down to pick out the wood today.

Originally I had proposed some Ambrosia Maple and the parents-to-be thought it was a good choice. Then I ran across some wood that I thought was much prettier – some curly cherry.

This is some really pretty wood. They want it a bit darker so I’ll be playing with some stain to darken down the appearance while still keeping the grain and curl noticeable.

Still plan on getting the plans drawn up this weekend so I can work on laying out the pieces on the wood. Since this is 4/4 wood and one of the pieces is wide enough, I’ll be resawing in order to bookmatch the ends of the cradle.
