Twin Trundle Bed #4: Trundle and 36" Slides

274 days ago by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

Here is the cherry trundle bed I am working on.-----The trundle box is built like a giant drawer, with dovetailed corners and a 3/4” plywood base. -----Since the base is 3/4” plywood, the dado cannot be concealed behind the dovetail.-----I filled the dado with some dovetail test cuts. The slides will conceal this area once installed. -----Here the trundle box has been coated with clear shellac, which adds almost no color to the poplar frame.-----Six casters are added to the b...

G&G Fantasia Queen Bed in Walnut #1: Darrell Peart inspired bed

277 days ago by mbs | 1 comment »

We’re slowly changing the furniture out in our summer home with Green and Green style Furniture. I’m starting a bedroom set which will consist of a Bed, two night stands, Dresser, highboy or an armoire. Darrell Peart has designed and made a bed called the fantasia. The bed isnt easy to find on his site because it’s not shown with his bedroom furniture. You can see it here. I’m closing the summer shop down because the snow could start flying anytime now. The sum...

Twin Trundle Bed #3: Bed Bolts and Decking Support

279 days ago by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

Here is the trundle bed I am working on.-----I marked the location for both the 1-3/8” face hole, and the 3/8” end grain hole before drilling. This bed bolt kit is from Rockler and it is quite a slick system. It provides an extremely strong and stable joint, with no visible fasteners. -----After both holes have been drilled, I insert 3/8” dowel centers. Then I reassemble the bed to dimple the location of the threaded inserts in the leg posts. -----The threaded insert ...

The current project is a twin-over-twin trundle bed for my son. -----The bed is made from cherry, and the footboard came together quickly. -----Footboard details…-----Now the headboard is coming together. It features frame and panel construction with solid cherry panels. -----The headboard features a shelf and gently arched stiles. -----The legs are hollow to store the low voltage transformer, and pass the cord neatly to the outlet. The legs are oversized to make room for the shel...

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #10: Stain, Lacquer, Hardware, and Lighting

311 days ago by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I stained and sprayed lacquer, and let the finish cure for 48 hours. Next I waxed the bed with Howard’s Walnut Wax and #0000 steel wool. Then I turned my attention to mounting the drawer pulls. I use Scott Collins “no math” method for laying out the hole locations. Then I offset the holes 3/16” higher than the layout mark, because the threads on the pulls are off-center. I use a full-size jig to mount the four pulls. -----Drawer pulls installed.-----I installed a...

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #9: Dovetail Drawers

323 days ago by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

Time to build drawers for the bed.-----I am using a P.C. jig to machine the dovetails. Everything is pretty standard, except the bit I use, which is a larger 14 degree dovetail bit from Rockler. I like to set up two routers – one with a 1/4” straight bit, and one with the dovetail bit. -----I start by hogging out waste with the straight bit. -----The second pass is with the 14 degree dovetail bit. -----I find this two-pass method makes cleaner cuts, with less chance of the wo...

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #8: The Wedge and Strap Inlay

325 days ago by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

Here is the bed project, which is nearing completion.-----A couple of headboard details remain, one of which is the wedge and strap detail. I tapered the backsplash, and glued the wedges on. Next I use carpet tape to attach the backsplash to a strip of plywood. This serves as a reference edge as I cut the dado for the walnut inlay. -----I use a dado set and miter gauge to cut the shallow dado. I make sure to cut both ends of the backsplash before adjusting the fence. Normally one would ...

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #7: Platform Support Boxes

327 days ago by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

The platform support features ten plywood panels that transfer the load straight to the floor. One corner is knocked off, so it won’t be visible under the arched sides of the bed. -----My wife and I worked on assembly of the carcase. We started by gluing and screwing five panels to the side rail. The top of the panels are flush with the groove in the side rails.A lower strip of plywood is then set into notches in the panels. -----Then another strip fills the top notch in the panels...
