For those of you who really want something different, check out the Baby Tender Rocking Cradle. It's a true replica of a ship made into a cradle.
We love the craftsmanship and the coziness of this cradle. It's made of cypress planked on a mahogany backbone with a lacewood transom. The suspension system is made of mahogany, but you can customer order the cradle in different woods and finishes. The cradle can even be placed on a wagon base (sold separately) for when your child is older. As you might have guessed, this custom piece will set you back a bit - $3200 to be exact. Check out Beaver Boatwork's Etsy shop for more details.
