Although these are recent pictures, this is not a recent project. I actually built it about 15 years ago. I just wanted to get it added to my Lumberjocks project gallery.
I’m proud to say it still looks the same today as the day we completed it. It has even survived a couple major cross country moves with absolutely no damage. Both times, the movers themselves were overwhelmed by it and were very protective of it.
The ornamental work on the bed was done by a former co-worker that played blacksmith as a hobby. It’s just gas pipe and some twisted square stock.
The nightstand drawers have sliding shelves with embedded marble. Perfect for that morning coffee or late night wine.
The base units on both of the armoires contain large pull out drawers. The top of the left one has pocket doors that hide a TV; the right one is compartmentalized with small dovetailed drawers and shelves. Any idea which one is mine and which one is the spouse’s?
To this day, I still get a small rush of pride when I open a drawer to get a pair of socks. I hope that never stops…
