I came up with a design for a new bed over a year ago. It will feature bubinga and maple. I’ve purchased the wood. The bubinga is absolutely beautiful. It’s time to start construction and I have cold feet. I’m having all sorts of second thoughts about the design and I have been searching and searching for ideas for a different design that will (hopefully) work with the wood I all ready own.
I could probably switch to a different wood and use the bubinga and maple for something else – but what? The bubinga consists of 2 6/4 boards that are 12” wide and 76” long. It would seem like a sin to resaw to make jewelry boxes. It would make a nice 3’ by 3’ table top with some left over but I already have a a table with a bubinga top.
Oh well – I’ll have to think this one through some more.
