So, this past while I’ve been busy with finishing up school, packing to get ready to move, and starting my work term/summer job at Added Touch Stairs and Floors.
The final step and the work I did on the last day at school, was milling the lumber for the side rails, and mounting the hardware. My teachers were exclaiming “Are we ever gonna get to see this thing put together! C’mon c’mon!”. Sure enough about an hour later I was getting help putting it together, my final mark on the project was a 92%.
After this I took the bed home and it hung out in the little space between our furnace and a wall in my basement for 2 weeks. This is for a few reasons:
Reason 1 – We’re moving, so we set it up when it’s already disassembled and ready for moving?
Reason 2 – It’s not finished, I don’t want to bang it up much, or spill something on it, or wreck the wood.
Reason 3 – I still don’t have a box spring or mattress for it.
After the 2 weeks, I was able to bring my bed over to my new work’s shop. It’s definitely a down grade compared to the school’s shop, but it’s a work in progress. After all, they’ve only been in that space for 2 months now! Its definitely a work in progress.
