Headboard for Quilter
A young quilter wanted a headboard that she could build. She wanted two panels for padded quilting. So we agreed on this design and under my supervision she built the headboard herself. The quilting design is her free hand work following only her imagination. She used a hand plane to take out the planer marks and ease the edges. You can check the quality of her work in the reflected light. This lady has skills!
California King Sleigh Bed
This is a walnut California King sized sleigh bed under construction. The wood was virgin timber used to construct a corn crib in northern Illinois and reclaimed to be stored for many years. The design was furnished by the customer as a pencil sketch on a piece of paper. The required size for the frame was determined by the California King specification. The frame is bolted with 1/2" bolts to both the head board and foot board, the bolts being covered by a removable medallion. The interior slats were made of 1 1/2" box beam steel hooked to the side rail steel beams. This bed could hold over 1000 lively pounds without a squeak! The finish is three top coats of clear lacquer rubbed out and lightly waxed. Packed for shipping to Hawaii, the crate weighed over 800 pounds. The bed is now in use by a VERY happy customer! A picture of the finished bed is on its way. Can you imagine this in your bedroom?
