(The Story So Far: Our Hero is constructing a built-in bed for his daughter, with inadequate tools and woodworking experience, and so far has made only a small number of terrible errors, which fortunately he can blame on others.)
Just a short note today, because I haven’t had time to make significant progress these last two days. I did get out and trim the two panels that make up one side of the built-in to the same width and cut the top and bottom pieces, as well as the one permanent shelf. That at least let me mock up the fit and look. I had to clamp the large panel to the woodworker’s ever-handy aid: the garage door.
Hmm, it looks less impressive in a photo than it did in my imagination when I was slaving to build it :-). As a reminder, this is what the finished piece will look like:
So that mock-up is one end, minus the shelves and drawers.
