Make an elegant daybed out of 2x4's and recycled decking

698 days ago by JordsWoodShop | 6 comments »

In this video I make an elegant day bed for under $45!Made entirely out of 2×4s for the frame and recycled pine decking for the slats, all that’s missing is a mattress and some sunny weather! Note: I will be the first person to say that I should add a rail down the center of the bed and I will be doing so, but as I am waiting for hardware to arrive from overseas I decided to upload the video before the project was completely finished. http://www.JordsWoodShop.comhttp://www.fa...

Daily Update #87: Hospice Prototype

1081 days ago by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

I don’t normally do prototypes, but when your doing several beds you may want to work out the bugs before you get into mass producing the parts. It’s a prototype and a selling item. I haven’t really sold the job yet. I’m pretty sure I will and if I don’t, I’ll leave this on on the showroom floor as an example of my work. I always need more of my stuff in our showroom. This one will probably stay on the showroom floor. This is finished with a standard ...

Daily Update #86: Chi Omega Spin Off

1083 days ago by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

Today I’ll be working on a prototype for Hospice in Fayetteville Arkansas. This is the same town that I did the 52 beds for the Chi Omega house. One of the ladies on the board that is working on the Hospice project is also an alumni of Chi Omega. She saw our beds a few weeks ago while they were being installed and wants us to build 13 daybeds for them. I traveled 3 hours up there on Thursday. I didn’t go just for that. I had some ladders to move at the Chi Omega house and ...

What we are doing in the shop for December 09, 2009. The 41 school bookcases are being delivered this morning by Paul and Donald. When they get back they’ll work on some drawers for three different bed pedestals. I’ll be working most of the day on a loft bed.

Day Bed #1: Intro and drawing

2107 days ago by TheSandman | 0 comments »

I’m seeking sage (or rosemary) advice on making a day bed. First on the design, and then on the selection of the type of wood. Since this is my first blog post, I don’t know much how this will show, so bare with me. Here is a design drawing I did. It’s a three sided view (front, side, top) There are many things that affect the design. Primarily my perceived ability, in which I would consider myself a “less than experienced” woodworker. And Secondly my equipme...
