This is a bed that was completed in December 2004. The customer wanted a Cinderella theme bed and here is what we came up with. I cut the ribs form sheet stock. I could only get 3 of the ribs out of a sheet of material and the base used a couple sheets there. This project had a lot of waste, but I couldn’t see any way out of that. The finish is a white lacquer with glitter sprinkled in the final coat. We also trimmed the ribs of the bed with rope lighting. The wheels were purchased from Harbor Freight (see link).
To cut the ribs, I made one template and used it as a pattern to cut the rest. On the platform I turned my router into a large compass by adding a long board to the base and screwing it down at the pivot point, th center.
