« Part 3: Bow footboard Toy box Part 4 of Boat Bed series Part 5: Final assembly »

It is now time to finish the custom boat bed. The customer picked two colors form a Minwax brochure: Harvest Grain and Cinnamon. Since I can’t find anyone to mix these for me we mixed them ourselves. The Harvest Grain is a kind of white wash stain to lighten the color of the oak.

Since it is a two tone color, All parts that are different colors on the same part won’t be assembled until after the staining. This will save time on taping parts off and will be a cleaner look. As you know stain colors will bleed.

Here are a couple pictures
