« Part 4: Making the frame Part 5 of Making of a cinderella carriage bed series Part 6: First mock up of the bed »

Ron sanding the frame.
Bill jumped in to help sand the frame.

The frame has 1/2” round over inside and out except for where the axles go.

More sanding.

And… more sanding.

And… more sanding. I hate sanding.
A dry fit to see how it all looks together.
We already sent the wheels to the painters shop.
Wish we had the wheels here.

The axles have a 1/16” gap all the way around the support to allow for expansion and contraction.

It’s late Saturday night and there in one more person that had allot to do with this project that should be pictured that is not here so the next picture will be of Diego and Bill with the 48” back wheel.

Next will be pictures of the rest of the parts and it all together.

-- Have a great day.

That sure looks like a massive project! Looking real good!

Have your say...
