new bed

Post by the barnacle on Tue Aug 20, 2013 6:55 am

I have been saying I will make a bed for 12 months - well the wife said she was off to Drems to get one - so I got my act together Very Happy  its all oak apart from the slats which I robbed off the old bed - a bed in a day.

Well that's something that would never have occurred to me someone would make a post of them making, 11/10 for imagination. Also nice bed, all oak you don't see many of them these days. Did you forage the logs of buy them?

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out

the logs were in a pile of wood ready to be chopped for firewood at the local saw mill but it was free and I did have to forage through the pile.

its the sturdiest bed I have had and I made it a bit higher than the old bed so I can get out easier in the morning,

Very Happy  loads - plus it was for free so a bonus, I have been asked by loads of people to make them for them but just don't have the time at the moment.
