So. The foot board is done. Solid Cherry as usual, with Walnut accents. The original plan was to make a full bed, but I think I might nip it off here and just do a bolt on. I still have a chest of drawers to make and I find I’m slowly running out of steam. We’ll see. Thanks fer lookin.

Yes, just bolt a metal frame to those beauties. Nobody will see it anyway. You need to save some steam for the dresser. The good news is that once done, you’ll have a bedroom set to die for. I’m still proud of mine ten years later.

Beautiful bed, Cherry and walnut make a great wood color contrast.

Thanks for the kind words gents. I’ve decided to go withthebolt on. I’ve developed a bit of a mobility issue that’s really dragging me down, so I’m trying to finish the suite ASAP. Marc-13. Not trying to be rude or anything, but I’ve never heard one good thing about Teds plans.
