Anyways - we've started some nursery/baby work!
My family has an heirloom cradle that held my two siblings and me, and my two nieces (and probably more family members that I'm not aware of...)
But it's solid wood, and once a few nuts/bolts were tightened (they becamse loose during a cross-country drive last spring!) it stands very securely...
E spent a few hours on it last week refinishing it as well, and it looks just awesome (pictures are with some Android camera phone filter - the cradle is really a much darker wood...)
