Really nice work Jim. Hey, with that big bed and those two tables in your shop, I don’t think you have room for that Powermatic saw anymore, I’ll be glad to remove it for you :-)

The only trouble with that setup is there’s no reason to get out of bed. :)

Beautiful work, Jim !!!

Nice tables & bed, nicely crafted.
Got details? Did you use plywood?, what kind of finish will you use?

“Form follows function” is what I’ve heard said. And this nice set looks really functional. My foster Mom used to take a small 3 legged table and cover it with a fabric and call that a bedside table…. but where could you keep your books, reading glasses, etc.? Good work!
