Bed #2: Head and Footboard (Part 1)

05-09-2010 05:12 AM by tyskkvinna | 4 comments »

I made the headboard and footboard. Or at least the main structure of them. This is the footboard, before I added any colouring to it: It is pine with the stripe of redwood.

Tonight, as I write this, my wife is out with her sisters and I’m exercising my skills in fatherhood. I’m also watching my nephews. Currently, the boys are sleeping and my daughter has just finished her 8 PM snack. Yes, this means I’m not in the shop again tonight, but that’s okay. I did spend a little time in the shop yesterday and as limited as it was, I did manage to work a little further on my knot repair exercise. Welcome to Fight Club.
