    My son's new Bed

    Took a personal day today, and proceeded to 'finish' the woodworking on my son's new Bed which I discussed here.

    Larry should like this - it's stout!

    Nicely done Ned. Looks like it will hold up to a young feller!

    Don't you two know how you are suppose to handle that? Quietly and quickly move when they go off to college and don't leave any forwarding address!

    I've actually built all of the beds in the house! This was my first 'decent' design where aesthetics were a concern for me. I tried to keep the hardware minimized.

    He's a solid young man, plays football and lacrosse, and works out frequently, I expect he'll be 'hard' on the bed as a result. Thanks!

    Two years til college, then we move... but he knows our destination already, so the address thing won't work (but it did get a laugh!)

    Good Idea on the bed, Ned. I LIKE a stout, solid bed. In my travels I've slept on a LOT of different beds around the world, and SOME of them were so fragile, loose and squeaky I was almost afraid to turn over for fear they would crash to the floor, (and three of them did).

    Yep, good looking bed Ned! Piece of plywood with mattress over it? Supposed to be good for your back that way. My bed growing up was similar.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
