Well, this was my first project. I guess I didn’t buy into the start small theory. The Headboard and Footboard of this queen size bed were made from red oak, stained, then several coats of poly to finish. I didn’t know really anything about woodworking going into this project, just what I had seen on TV. I did buy the 2 newel posts to frame in the headboard. That really determined the wood species for the rest of the bed and I did not want to attempt creating them myself. There are plenty of mistakes in this one, but turned out pretty nice if you don’t have your glasses on.
Lesson learned from this project? – Don’t start small, shoot for the moon.
-- There is a lesson in every project. Play safe!
