    Took the tree down a year or two ago, and finally got around to building a real piece of furniture!

    Very nice job. The Pooh pics are fitting consider how many diapers that baby will through. How were the illustrations put on the end boards, and what wood was used for the cradle? The light colored wood reminds me of a cherry tree that I recently cut.

    Graphics were done with a laser. Wood is hard maple and paduk.
