Building a Cherry Queen Bed #3: The Headboard

06-28-2016 11:19 AM by jonah | 4 comments »

I started on the headboard, naturally, with milling (and milling, and milling) the various parts down to just larger than their final size. I neglected to take a picture of my wood pile before I started, so you’ll have to use your imagination and picture this pile about eight boards high by two across. This picture is after I got done with the headboard pieces: I had to get parts for the two posts, a bottom rail, and an upper and lower rail for the panels at the top of the headbo...

Building a Cherry Queen Bed #2: The Footboard

06-18-2016 04:43 PM by jonah | 2 comments »

I started with what I was sure was going to be the easiest part of the bed: the footboard. It’s pretty simple: two ~18” high 3 1/4” square posts with a taper on two sides and a ~58” rail. After milling the parts, I laid out the mortises for the rail and made 3/4” wide, deep (1”) mortises to ensure the assembly is as strong as I can make it. I made the mortises with a router and the tenons on the table saw, as normal. Nothing major to report there. I did ...

Building a Cherry Queen Bed #1: Design Evolutions and Finalization

06-17-2016 06:46 PM by jonah | 1 comment »

I started designing this bed quite a long time ago. Originally, it was a more arts-and-crafts style, but my wife didn’t like the style and asked if I could make some changes. After looking at the bed Marc Spagnolo recently made we made some more changes and ended up with this design: Essentially the headboard is a set of two frame-and-panel sections with rails set in the groove that the panel is in. We spent some time at a local plywood dealer looking over exotics and veneers and...

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #1: Introduction to where I am & what I'm doing

09-15-2015 07:41 PM by RobII | 0 comments »

Just got engaged a few months ago and promised my bride-to-be a hand-made captain’s bed (you know, drawers underneath the mattress platform) with corner posts and a canopy with a mirror. Found out they don’t use glass, but it’s still reflective – so it’s OK. Thought I’d start with turned posts and mixed species to give the bed some “character” instead of the much more common square or built-up posts and all the same wood – bleah! Got ...

2x4 Bunk Bed Build #3: Drawbore mortise and tenon

04-17-2015 01:43 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Well in part 1 I went over cutting a tenon. Part 2 included how to chop the mortise. This time grab your drills and a few dowels as we pin the mortise and tenon joint together. This is as easy as eating cake, without all the calories. View on YouTube

2x4 Bunk Bed Build #2: Chopping Mortises-How To

04-11-2015 06:17 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Wow it seems like this is going slow. Work has been busy and finding time to work on this bunk bed is hard. However, I have finished up another step in the bunk bed and that is getting all the mortises chopped out on the ends. There were 12 total and they all went smooth. In this video I show what tools you need to mark your mortises as well as which tools you’ll need to chop out the mortises. Enjoy, comment, share, and give it a thumbs up! View on YouTube

Twin Trundle Bed #4: Trundle and 36" Slides

10-30-2013 04:38 PM 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...
