Finally I’m able to post a project!!
I completed this twin bed of my own design yesterday. I built this for a friends 2 year old daughter.
I built it out of poplar #1 because it was going to be painted and #2 there was a small budget. I won’t be making anything on the job but I’m hoping the little girl enjoys it—she’s been asking mommy where her bed is for the past 2 weeks LOL
I wanted to make it special for her so I inlaid a 5” tall purpleheart “S” (her initial) in the foot board. I used the Marks/Spagnolo inlay technique (my first attempt at this) and left it proud of the surface by 3/16”.
I was able to use tools that I bought at a garage sale in Ohio last summer that I had yet to be able to because i only had a patio to work on—now I am sharing a 40’ x 70’ shop with my brother (what a joy that is)
Hope everyone enjoys and I would like to hear your comments and criticism.
