Dad came down from Wisconsin to Florida this past December (Like that was a hard one to sell) and helped me bang out a couple of pieces for our bedroom. I chose hard maple. My fist time working with it. It was an interesting experience. Everything is custom height because my lovely bride bought a bed that is higher off the ground than most. The pieces are now finished and the wife is happy. Now that my small garage shop has some room, I am working on the head and foot boards.

Making the wife happy is key to playing in the shop. Spending time with your pops had to be great. Mine is in Michigan so we don’t get to work together a much as I would like. Thank god for phones so we can talk about projects.

Love the style and sizes you have built. I reall like the big one such a different width than you normally see, & keep the drawers wide looks great.

Love the whitewood panels. This along with very light grain give you many options for finishing and decorating. I use a lot of white maple and figured maple—check out the dye stains if you are using color in your finish. Makes grain pop—chantoyance (sp) Uppity word for sparkly deep. Nice project, now get back to sanding. spj
