these are a pair of bed steps i made for my son and daughter in law, they were newly married and had asked i make them for them, the wood is oak, the story of the oak is that it came from a building my sons granfather had built for raiseing chikens for eggs, this building was still standing when we moved here and i salvaged quite a bit of oak from it, the bedsteps have the word ’’MORE’’ carved into the top, it was an expression my son and his wife said to each other, meaning they wanted more love., both top and bottom are also storage for books and such.

Nice boxes/steps. My wife needs one of those to get into bed also.

Keep it up.

I can’t get over that wood grizzman. Such character. Great job finishing, too.

Did you use dowels in your joinery?

Nice Grizz, My wife would like me to make a set of these for our dog to help get him up on the bed. He’s a 12 year old lab with sore hips, he always laid with us for a hour or two until lately it’s to difficult for him to make the leap. Good idea about the storage.

thank you folks for your kind remarks and i would have to agree, i think the wood is beautiful…its red oak i believe, i salvaged it from a building on our property that my father in law had built for the raising of chickens , for there eggs…..the whole building is made of oak…and Ive savaged some here and there….some boards being very long and always 10 or so inches wide..they were for my son and his wife…..we have aging dogs as well who share our king size bed..im going to make them a ramp…i think it will be easier to go up then do steps…the steps would still require an amount of agility and strenght…the ramp to me would be more nogotable… p.s. they are held togeather with screws, then i covered them with plugs…and where i made the boards larger..i use biscuits and glue…...

Wow, that stinks!! Probably not what you wanted to be doing today, fixing bedroom windows or searching for a replacement wind shield…
Up here, we’re expecting our first real winter storm today and it’s supposed to be an ice storm to boot!! I just hope the lights don’t go out… (fingers crossed…)
