    The BED, Thanks, Tod, Steve Clardy, and the rest of you

    For the support and many ideas of ways for me to get threw this, once i got to the real wood parts.. the veneering was done some time back, but i hadnt got to the real work till this spring. And threw many pm's and a few calls i got threw to the end..curve's arent the same as flat and straight!!! they look the same but trust me all kinds of things change when yu get into curves...
    so here is the final outcome of all of your input and some of my time. i got 4 to 5 coats sanding sealer, and 5 coats of top coat. then hand rubbed most of it and got some of it with RO but the hands done most of it.. and we got the silky feel i was after so thanks to the finishing gurus here .Charlie, Dave and others and few hours of midnight oil and lots of radio paradise cranked up that was vaughns contribution

    Well folks, I have had the extreme privilege of seeing it, feeling it, and DROOLING "beside" this piece of master craftsmanship. Pictures show so much but to see up close and personal............ya, not enough words. So well done Larry, so well done Your daughter and SIL are going to treasure that forever

    Hey Larry. I am impressed. That is pure beautiful. I hope you buy those guys a cool one that gave the info on the finish because they really gave you good info. And a high five to you for taking the time and giving the effort. In my dreams I wish I could finish a piece like that.
