The back story:
I’ve been telling myself for years that I’m going to make me a bed. I guess technically I only need one bed as there is just me. But when Mom and Dad come to visit on their annual sojourn west, I give them my bed and I sleep on the floor. I actually don’t mind sleeping on the floor but now that I’m on the other side of 40, getting up off of the floor is more and more challenging.

I’ve been down and completely out with the flue for the last couple of weeks. A really nasty bugger. If I get it, you know it’s a bad one. So I finally felt well enough to go to the hardwood supplier and pick up some QSWO. Their selection was pretty picked though but I manage to find about 100bf of at least something that I could work with.

I got it home and stickered but decided that I would get started never the less. So here are the legs. I laminated 3 1” boards to make the legs 3×3.

I don’t feel like doing much else. Hopefully I’ll feel like starting on the mortices for the rails tomorrow.
