Baby O's Bed

This bed contained three firsts for me: first attempt at bent lamination, first time to spray a water based urethane, and the first grandchild. I am pretty darn proud the way all three came out. The bed is constructed of solid ash and David Marks would have been proud of some of the jigs that were used in its construction (ha). The bed is convertible so that it can serve her for a long time. Our Baby O joined us July 2, 2008, and her bed was actually ready for her homecoming (and Kent that was NOT a dig, well maybe). My son and his wife are already talking about the next one and what type of bed they should have. PePaw will be ready.

Nice bed Dwayne

And her bed will be ready in time. She may just be sleeping in wet paint!
Daily the family asks—”Are you finished yet” (insert screaming and hairpulling now)

I’ll go to work now

Dwayne…really nice work, especially the bent front rail. I just finished a crib about a week ago for our second. As many told me, it appears that your heirloom is in no danger of a recall!

I am sure Pa-pa’s bed won’t be recalled. Great job, one she will cherish for her kids.
