While we may dream of handcrafting our baby’s first furniture and imagine it being passed down through the generations, this just isn’t reality for all but a few creative individuals. Fortunately, those with the time and ability can sometimes be found sharing their skills with us on Etsy. Every so often I scan the site to see if the woodworkers and furniture makers have created anything for their littlest customers. This time I’ve found two handmade walnut bassinets worthy of the most fortunate babies as well as their babies and their babies’ babies.
From Fine Woodworking of SC, this beautiful hand-sculpted curved walnut cradle will someday be in a museum. Until then (for $6000), it can be yours. You can admire your precious creation sleeping in this precious creation– at least for a couple months until they outgrow it.
A little more realistic is The Sleeper Walnut Bassinet from rydenDESIGN. Pull this beautiful bed into your master bedroom and you’ll always want to have a little one to occupy it. $800
This bassinet from Turner and Branch is made to order and can be customized with your selection of woods. The one shown below is Walnut and Ash. $395
Which would you choose? What about if price were no object?
