Dad came down from Wisconsin to Florida this past December (Like that was a hard one to sell) and helped me bang out a couple of pieces for our bedroom. I chose hard maple. My fist time working with it. It was an interesting experience. Everything is custom height because my lovely bride bought a bed that is higher off the ground than most. The pieces are now finished and the wife is happy. Now that my small garage shop has some room, I am working on the head and foot boards.
