We’re slowly changing the furniture out in our summer home with Green and Green style Furniture. I’m starting a bedroom set which will consist of a Bed, two night stands, Dresser, highboy or an armoire. Darrell Peart has designed and made a bed called the fantasia. The bed isnt easy to find on his site because it’s not shown with his bedroom furniture. You can see it here.

I’m closing the summer shop down because the snow could start flying anytime now. The summer shop is much bigger and better outfitted than the winter shop. Since I needed to get some wood roughed out I made a quick sketch. I took a rough guess at the dimensions and started cutting wood.

Starting with mostly 5/4 wood

Here’s one stack of milled wood. I have another stack in the truck.

Other projects will prevent me from working on the bed for a while. But it will be a good winter project.

That’s a pretty ambitious project but should be easily within your skill level! That is a beautiful bed!
