I love carving my screen doors but even I get sick of only building one type of project so I branched out and started with simple furniture. This is a bed I made for my son for christmas. It was a huge surprise and he loves his bed…he even tends to keep his room cleaner now! Talk about a minor miracle! LOL!!! I used some of the same carving techniques on the bed that I use on the screen doors. The posts and rails are tenoned together using the Veritas tenon maker and I’ll admit to cheating on the bed frame itself. I have three children and was too nervous about kid’s jumping on the bed to actually trust building a log frame so I have securely attached the headboard to a metal bed frame.

So you say he keeps his room cleaner, hmmm…... I just might have to make four of these for my kids if that’s all it takes. I would have trusted the log frame. I have to drag my daughters steel frame bed out to the garage sometime soon and weld it where it broke. I’m sure you could have made it better with wood based off of the great job you did on the headboard.

Thanks Grizz! I’m not worried about the economy…I’m not really starting the business to make a profit. I’m hoping to pay the sales tax so I don’t get in any trouble with the gov and break even. The business is really just because I need something to do that is flexible enough that I can still run my kid to her Neuro, Peds, and Specialist appointments.
