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 ...
It’s Complete! With some paint screws and some half lap joinery, 2×4 bunk bed build is over. It was a fun project and will last a really long time. Check out the video, comment, like and subscribe. View on YouTube
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
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
Stop buying produce from the local store where they spray pesticides on it. Grow your own food. I recently made a raised garden bed, total cost-$35. Link to Video
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...
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...
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 ...
Here is the trundle bed we are working on.-----The last details on the headboard were the top caps, and some decorative tenons. -----One side of the bed has a frame and panel assembly. It features solid cherry panels, which are recessed for a subtle reveal. -----The assembly features haunched tenons for a sturdy connection. -----Test fitting the frame and panel assembly.-----The rails hang on large tenons, and will be secured with concealed bed bolts. I layout the tenons in such a way th...
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...
