    Wow, that’s a way better idea than my DIY microwave baby warmer.

    nice… just wonder how loud it is…

  4. Wawet76 says:

    It’s quite quiet.

    Microwave oven sound probably came from the ventilation.

    Probably the best project you can make that has “baby” and “microwave oven” in the parts list.

    Okay, where was that 4-5 months ago when I needed it!?!?! Great idea, thanks!

    This is great. Now I need to get working before our baby comes in May.

    okay, this is amazing and brilliant. We have a baby. Our baby has a super cool swing. All my pals see the swing and say “dang, can we make an ADULT size one of these in your back yard?”

    The rocking mechanism is the only part I have not been able to figure out. Do I use a concentric cam? How do I get it to drop, blah, and VOILA, you did it!

    Thank you for the inspiration. Now I need to go weld and plant some box section steel. I can power it with a 3.5 hp i have laying around.

    I just need to cut the wheels. WOO HOOO
