1190 days ago by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

Okay, I got approval form the customer and time to get started on the project. To pattern it I enlisted the services from a local sign company. They printed it up with the colors separated life size (life size to the bed not life size in the wild). They made me some mask to use as the pattern. Here is also the wood I choose to use. They are Quarter Sawn Walnut (dark color) and Lacewood (reddish color): These were masks so I was able to stick them to the veneer pieces. I cut them out...

1302 days ago by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

French Fry Friday is when I put a focus on those smaller accessories. This week I’m turning my attention to some small legs that I added to a recent murphy bed.
