This is a baseball bed that was completed in April 2010. It is a version of our standard baseball bed where we use Ash wood to match the bats. We then have the letters carved into the headboard. This customer added a set of captain’s drawer on one side.
After the carving was completed we paint the recesses black. Normally we do this by hand, but I had an idea. What if we added a mask over the wood before the letters were routered. Then after the painted we remove the mask and no clean up. It seem to work fine until we tried to take the mask off. The adhesive was too strong and made this process take longer than expected. Then we had to remove the residue of glue. It took a little elbow grease, but it turned out nice.
