I posted some dusty pics under my projects. And these pics aren’t great additions, but they’re too heavy for me to move around by myself (and risk banging up) for better pics. I did get a lttle of the dust off the chest at least/

Very nice project. I hope you don’t have to climb any stairs because the pieces look pretty solid. If you do, get plenty of help.

By the way now that the bed and chest are completed I assume that nightstands and possibly an armoire are also in the picture? After all I would hate to see you get bored.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes, they do look heavy. They look great!

sbryan -

The folks that asked me to build these three pieces, in addition to a previous mission couch and chair, are moving to Iowa in the Fall. They are wonderful members of my congregation, and while they never would admit it, they actually gave me commissions for the therapeutic value for their pastor rather than thier real need for furniture. They have also heard me talk about my desire to transition into a bi-vocational “woodworking-small-church-parson” future when the kids are through college. They were giving me opportunity to hone my skills as well. Good friends. I’ll miss them. And unless they place an order for me to deliver to Iowa on the way to visit my Mom in Illinois sometime, the nightstands and armoire are not on the list of things to do

:(

If I want to keep this up, I need to actually advertise myself and find true customers.

They picked up the other two pieces yesterday. Waiting for a large & long (8’ x 12’?) old general store – old hardware store type base cabinet with display shelves above to be brought to me for restoration.

Trying to straighten up and get a couple little things out of the way (like my box contest entry).
