This is an old project that I completed twelve years ago. I wasn’t a member of LJ’s then. My daughter was younger. My camera was not digital, in fact the only pictures I have of this under construction were taken by my sister-in-law.
Now that my daughter is away to college and her room is cleaned out I could take some pictures and share this. I must confess I took the pictures with my phone. When I made the bed I didn’t even have a cell phone, let alone one that would take pictures.
The bed is Cherry except for the slats that are made of Maple. This was my first furniture project after buying my lathe. I do not have a duplicator. All the spindles and posts I cut from a cardboard pattern that I drew. The spindles taper at different rates due to the placement in the arch.
