Over the last 38 years, the queen-size Cannonball bed that my wife and I bought when we got married has been destroyed – piece by piece (it was the five kids, and the dogs, and the movers – honest). All we have left is the headboard. And now the darling girl has decided she wants a king-sized bed.
So I started drawing, trying to reproduce what I remember. Something like this.
I’ll have to commission someone to do the turned parts, the posts and gallery spindles, since I don’t turn (maybe Osborne). Probably do it in cherry.
I’ll probably build storage drawers to place underneath (and serve as a foundation platform).
Thoughts? Concerns? Problems? Considerations?
