A patch work bed made from Oak. The raised panels are cherry and walnut.
I stood back when the raised panels went through the shaper thinking it may go flying apart.
All went well. Pocket hole joinery was used to assemble the head and footboard.
Thanks to a page out of Mary Ann’s blog to make the glue up on the headboard.

Isabella grew out of her little bed and into this one just in time to make room for a new sister!

Olivia Rose was born last night. Everyone is doing well!

Thanks David.
I made a dresser for the newborn but haven’t got the drawer pulls on it yet. The baby came three days early.
I should have them done before they come home from the hospital.

Thanks, could have been a little better if I wouldn’t have trimed the wrong side before shaping them.
They were to be with the grain going up!
Isabella wont care.

That is a very nice bed, John, and you did a great job on it.

Congratulations on the new baby. From the look of your profile pic, you’ve got quite a houseful! Time for a hobby horse next?

Beautiful looking bed. It looks like she is very willing to trade up.

Great bed and cool way to insert the Drunken Patten in to the bed. She looks very happy…
