Cradle Boat

I built this cradle just before my son was born. The transoms, keel and knees are walnut, the planks are pine planed to 1/8-in. thick and ribs are white ash. The davits are maple and Lyptus with a little piece of walnut trim on the top. I turned sheaves for the lines to run over from the cradle to the bronze horn cleats. The axles for the sheaves are retained by pennies minted in the same year as the skipper.
The most original concept and build of any I have seen here. Splendid work and a very original and well thought out idea.
