This is my 1st bed and my largest project I’ve ever done. Joshua wanted the headboard solid so he could not see behind it. He has helped me with some of the bed. I wanted it to match the chest of drawers I refinished earlier this year. You can see the antlers and hoof prints I wood burnt in it. You can see Joshua pointing to the removeable legs. So until he gets bigger it will be low to the ground. Also the bolts and washers I put in muratic acid. And a neat thing I did, I wrote on the back and had Joshua sign it also. I hope he will appreciate the bed in years to come. And a special thanks to Nate Weltz on Lumberjocks whom I asked alot of questions through email. Thank you for all your help. It’s all 2×4 and 2×10 and 1×4. Sorry about the messy shop.

Great idea with the message and having him sign it. Makes a personal project all the more personal.
