This is a project I did in 1999, Was the first project I did with a lathe. The spindals and balls at the foot, and in the head board, were my attemps at lathe work. The spindles at the foot were made hollow, and then turned in beads in, had to fill ends, center and turn. The construction is White Oak with Minwax Golden Oak stain and a Poly-urathane finish. It’s time to redecorate and I’m in the process of making a Curly Maple and Cherry set. I just completed the Wardrobe started to stain today. The bed rails, were made with metal bed rail hangers, so that there were no tools needed to assemble. It has Eight large full extension drawers, Four each side and a large blanket drawer in the foot. Good thing my cousin in Florida drives truck, He’s going to need it to get it there, lost his whole house two years ago in a Hurricane.
