I think I’m turning into a ship builder. I have built four “boat beds” over the last several months and working on an order for three of them now. More info on how to watch us build them below.

Standard add portholes in April

Changed headboard in June

Pirate in June

Pirate in July

Now I’m building three for a customer. I have the parts cut out and will be building on them today.

I don’t know if you’ve posted any of these before. If you have, I am sorry I missed them, because that is the coolest beds I have ever laid eyes on. Now I just need to talk my wife into the idea of sleeping in a boat bed.

Well I added you to my buddy list so I do not miss another amazing project like this.
I can’t help it if I’m an old river rat. Anything having to do with boats catches my attention QUICK.

excellent boat beds. Very well crafted. I am not surprized that you are
recieving orders for them. The pirate bed looks expensive to build…
