Since I have returned to the states I have had a lot of inspiration from fellow L/J’s. Maybe because I read L/J’s every day just waiting till I could get home and back in my shop.
I have a 10 year old girl that stops by the shop with her daddy. She had a birthday since I last saw her last and was wanting an American Doll bed she didn’t get. Right on Q there was one posted on L/J’s posted by KERUX2. I emailed him and asked if it was OK if I used it and like all L/J’s he said sure, why not. I made 4 total. One for a birthday present that started all this, one for our granddaughters that my wife added the fancy canopy and bed clothes to, one for the upcoming Harvest Festival at our granddaughters school next month and one for the shop. Oh, they fit cats too.

Great project. I also saw the bed by KERUX2 and thought I will have to copy that. I am making some similar ones for Christmas gifts for our church this year. I might have to make one of these. It does feel good to give back to the community, well done. Nothing beat a smile from a little kid.

Glad you are back from the fringe world.

Very nice work!

The things for kids always seem to give the maker more pleasure, don’t they?

Every girl who gets one of these doll bed must be really lucky child. For me, to make one is too big job and making four is NOWAY in the world. Congratulations.
