Well,,,, I just got a random comment on an old post and was surprised to see that maybe 6 years have gone by since putting anything up! It looks like you are all crazy about jigs and fixtures and still making tons of stuff. Same here more or less, Last year I got caught in a run of about 45 pieces ( including 20 chairs) of what I would categorize as traditional woodworking. It was interesting to revisit some of these old forms and try to come up with something a bit new / different. These are the two 4 posters that were part of the commission.

Wow! What stunning beds! The wood is gorgeous and the design looks very original, but traditional. It sounds like you’ve been plenty busy. Thanks for sharing.

The one on the lead is awesome, but probably isn’t going to work with my furnishings. The one that has the lower head/foot boards is just awesome. That Koa is magnificent.

Nice work x 2.

well, it’s a shame to put bed sheets and covers on that but I guess they do compliment the beautiful furniture
