    design ,,when is to much

    ok i have got threw one obstical this wknd and thought i was off to the finish line well.. i ran into another hidun obstical.. myself... i cant decide if a bit of beading on the bed side is needed or not..i have beading on the rails, the sides of the foot board and the head board sides are plain. the foot board panel also has beading..the other problem is i feel i need to incorporate the rails to the head and foot boards with like design.. my head says one thing now and something else later .. have asked a couple folk there opinion and have got two different answers imagine that

    so when do you what is enough and what should or shouldnt be.??? this is one class i missed in school

    Are you going to bead the outside and not the inside? Or are you talking no beading on themat all? Really Larry it will look good either way

    design ,,when is to much

    Hi Larry,

    Did you get a beading tool, like the one we had talked about long time ago?

    If you are talking about beading the legs of the bed, I think that would look nice, but maybe a little overboard. Maybe just a roundover will be good.

    You have incorporated so much beauty into that bed that it might be better to leave well enough alone.

    JMNSHO.

    Aloha, Tony

    tony i havnt got the neat tool yu showed me but i as tod mentioned i havnt convinced myself to let it go without..becasue once i do it i am obligated and if i go to the next step my chance of doing it is tougher yet..kinda like the gitters on race day you know your car is ready but then you start wondering if you put all the bolts in tight..i can see this with it and i have made the sample which i had shown some time back but that was on straight stock this far from straight...but i feel i need to bring the foot board and the head board together in some way,, and Dan i dont mean a bed bolt of some hardware i mean design wize

    if there is a feature that is common in both, i would use that larry.

    just make sure you don't get your beard stuck between the headboard and sideboards. as funny as that would be, it could be potentially embarrassing too...
