Good morning lumber jocks. I started my own business 3 1/2 years ago and I done alright with it but the one thing I haven’t done is try to build new things or more challegeing things. With my business I make beds of all sizes. Well I had a lady call me and asked me if I could make her two loft beds with a desk and a dresser under each one. At first I was thinking if I could make that for her. Then I thought yea I can how am I going to ever learn how to make some of those things like dressers and other things if I don’t try to make them. So what I am saying sometimes you need to just try making it and expanding you woodworking skills. So in the next few weeks I will be making the loft beds with the desks and dressers to go with them. I will post pictures when I am working on them and when I am finished with them.

I was looking for a bunk for my guest bedroom (I don’t have kids myself, but my fiance’ has some youngsters that visit). I came across several really clever designs incorporating drawers into the stairs, cute little desks, etc. I was really impressed. I’m looking forward to seeing yours.

You don’t know if you can do it unless you try. I’m sure the furniture will turn out great. Can’t wait for the pictures.

You must do something beyond your comfort level in order to learn and develop your skill. If you keep doing the same things over and over, how will you ever learn to do something else? I don’t always follow my own advice but I do try to do something challenging every now and then. Good luck with your ventures.
