« Part 3: Turning the axels Part 4 of Making of a cinderella carriage bed series Part 5: Finishing the frame and dry fit. »

This is the template we used.

The frame is 3 pcs. of 3/4” ash glued together. We cut out the center piece first then glue on an out side layer.

Can never have enough clamps.

This is what it will look like. Now we cut that last layer on the inverted pin router.

This is what it looks like after all three layers are cut.

Here is one out of two frames cut with the axles inserted.

Here are the steps for the bed.

Next we cut the other frame and sand it all up.

-- Have a great day.

This looks like so much fun.
You certainly do good work.
I’ll bet this one goes in the sales album.
