This is a video documentary on the making of the Rocker Cradle. Although I would love to take credit for the idea and invention of the Rocker cradle, truth be told, I'm not that smart. The concept of Rocker Cradles, or "Nanny Rockers", originated with the Shakers and they gained popularity after being adopted and built in the Windsor style.
The rest, as they say, is history.
To honor, as well as add to this legacy, I simply updated the original design a bit. In this video, I document the creation of one of these historically rich and unique woodworking pieces. I hope you find the journey as interesting and as entertaining as I do.
