Hey everyone just decided to post the sketchup version of my new bedframe I’m slowly working on. I’ve got surgery coming up so it’ll be a while before I finish it. Its solid maple and the panels are gooing to be made with bloodwood with 1/4” maple ply in the middle. Very expensive but well worth it. Tell me what you think..

P.S. note i didn’t route any of the edges..for one i dont know how on this dang sketchup…for two it would take too long but we all have the idea its not gooing to look like a box…or will it?

This will look great with the bloodwood mix.
Be sure to post the completion.
Hope for you to have a speedy recovery.

The heck with the bed! It’ll look great I am sure. Congrats on designing something with Sketchup! That is a MAJOR accomplishment.

lol YOU’RE NOT KIDDING! drawing this all by hand would’ve been so much easier and quicker with less mistakes. The only reason i drew it up on sketchup is because I wanted to see it in 3d, from different points of view, and it was my first time using sketchup so I wanted to see how far i could go.

Nice job. It should look great when it’s done.

Routing w/SU isn’t too bad, as long as you’re just doing edges. Trying to get three roundovers to meet at a corner is what’s got me stumped. Don’t give up though. It’s a great program.
