    Qtrd Curly Cherry Bed (It's started)

    Well I have started a new project. I make so many wood projects during the course of the day I think that I should make something for my LOML and myself.

    What I am making is a Quartered Sawn Curly Cherry Bed with Raised Curly Soft Maple Panels.

    I have just started this project and will update as I go. Here are some pic's of the wood I am using.

    I'm thinking along the sames lines as Chuck. Forget about Larry's wood stash, I'd be trying to steal yours.

    Looking forward to watching the bed come together, Jim.

    Hi Jim,

    I will be following this thread with great interest as LOML has asked me to build her a full bedroom suite starting with a bed. She wants storage underneath so I've been looking at designs for platform beds. The ones I've seen so far have one of two fundamental problems, they're either far too advanced for my current skills or so incredibly simple as to be aesthetically unpleasing (think of a mattress in a box). I'm looking forward to seeing lots of pictures of your progress and learning a thing or thousand along the way.

    Well got the side rails cut and ready for glue..I am laminating a piece of qtrd cherry to a ash/cherry board for thickness and ash for strength. the tops, sub tops, and some rails are cut. I have to laminate alot of the lumber due to the lumber is 4/4 and I have lots of plainsawn to put on the back of the head board and qtrd on the back of the foot board. legs are next and stiles and panals.

    after all is cut I will S2S all the face laminates on the moulder then Glue them in the freq press.
    then off to the moulder again to S4S them.
    Will have pics of the moulder wile running them
    If it can be Moulded I'll Mould It.
