Bed - Rails, Test Assembly

Oak queen bed for Jonathan - made the rails with caps and cleats, then test-assembled with headboard and footboard...

Next up - make the slats, lots of finish-sanding, and applying the finish.  Getting closer!

Bed - Footboard Build

I finished building Jonathan's bed footboard.  :)

Lots of homemade baseboard, caps, and moldings, so lots of routing and mitering.

Next up will be all the same stuff for the headboard!

Grampa's Workshop

Grampa's Workshop-Palooza 2023, in Va and Md!

We really loved our time with the grand-buddies and girlie, lots of fun learning some skills, building birdhouses together!  Many thanks to the shop supervisors who did a great job helping the students hands-on.  :)
