I am using pinewood that is laminated into sheets (approx. 2" wide
strips, stuck together to form planks). This is not laminated with a
veneer, is real wood, but is much more environmentally efficient than
solid wood planks (I am not questioning the beauty of using solid wood).
I think this is also called glue-lam??/
Here in the U.S. I think you'd be referring to plywood. Laminated
layers, ssually sold in about 4 foot by 8 foot sheets. I don't think
I've ever heard it refered to as glue-lam, but that sounds accurate.
You get different quality versions, depending on use, wood it's made
from, and price. I see nothing at all bad with making a cradle out of
it - the decent stuff that is, not the lower, construction, grade. On
the other hand I would make a rocking chair rather than a cradle, but
I do things I don't know how to do, so that I might learn how to do
