Welcome to the first blog entry for my Double Single Bed project. If you didn’t pick up on the subtleness, I’ll be making two single bed frames. One for each of the kids in the house, as surprise Christmas presents.
The spark for the project was an innocent comment from my wife, “The Jet table saw you wanted is on sale, Black Friday. I’ll split the cost with you.”
Ten days later it arrived.
The winter’s been mild too, so what better time of the year to begin a project? I took half a day off from work, drove out to Armstrong Millworks and selected about 80 BF of 8/4 and 6/4 red oak. Forgot my checkbook, so after a quick trip to the bank (I was playa, temporarily) it was mine.
Thankfully, the wood stayed in the back of my car & I made it home safely.
Thanks for reading. More to follow…
