“Man in the Moon’ Baby Cot/Crib/Bed, made for a dreamer or future astronaut, pilot, or just a star gazer. makes me wish i was small again! Solidly built from old wineboxes and heartwood, using timber dowel to eliminate the look of ugly screws and nails. The moon can sit solidly on the floor with no rocking movement, or the moon can sit on a stand which gently rocks the whole moon from side to side (not front to back as you’d imagine the moon to do!), looks beautiful when in action you just want to crawl into it yourself and catch a few Zzzzzs!
