I am about to start on a boat bed. This is one that I’ve built several times. This one is a little different. The customer doesn’t have room for the foot (Bow) of the bed so I am making it as a stand alone toybox that can be pushed up to the foot of the bed when they have room. Also the customer wanted to add portholes down the side. I’ll have 3 on each side. Instead of the trundle there will be three drawers. I will also build a 5 drawer chest and a 2 drawer nightstand to match.
One other thing that will set this a part is instead of it being painted this one will be a stained oak. I’ve built a couple stained maple but never in oak.
I am very excited about starting this project. As I am writing this I’ve already made my cut list, banded most of the parts, and built the chest frame, nightstand frame, and drawer pedestal frame.
I’ll be recording my shop video feed so check back for those or you can watch live at:
