I began taking some shop classes for woodworking about 6 years ago. I used to tease my instructor that I was his worst nightmare come to life, because I could think of nothing small that I wanted to build… was all big stuff. This is a long story so I am going to make it short…......this is my second project ever…..I designed it, carved it, built it myself. I made two of these… for each one of my sons. The headboards are out of white pine and the posts are made out of hemlock.

Hi Robin;

Why build anything easy?

Great project. Seems you’re not afraid to try anything, huh?

Yea….....I saw your comment on your page about making everything so complicated…........I am the same way…............I have got to complicate….................if I can’t then why, oh why, bother with it. my instructor was very good with me, I brought in my designs and he would take in a big sigh and say go ahead….............I had very little skill at that time…........ but big ideas!
