My first attempt at functional furniture was my daughter’s canopy toddler bed. She turned three yesterday, (Nov. 2, 2011), and this was her birthday gift from Daddy.

Very nice. Looks like she is enjoying it.
Start planning now…....In a few more years you will have to make her a new bed with storage underneath for all of her clothes. I would figure on at least 6 drawers with full extension slides….9 drawers would be better and she may enjoy the hight of the bed as well. Similar to a bunk bed. Keep watching this site. I have seen some clever designs pass through.

I’ve already started planning. And thanks. I’ve been reading the forums here for a while, but just joined a little while back.

That smile says it all. Great looking bed, and a beautiful little lady enjoying it. Life does not get much
better than this, your own workshop and a wonderful family to enjoy the projects coming from it. Thank
you for sharing.

Thanks to everyone. I really enjoy making things from wood for my family, and hope to someday be able to supplement my income with a little bit of sales.
