Selected most of the wood, thought this thread should be over here.
Im going to give it a shot. ITs only wood. Nothing like the smell of mahogany in the morning.
Cut most of the parts and planed/jointed them.
I did not have enough 1 and 1/8th afterall, so the headboard and footboard assemblies will be one inch, the bed side rails will be 1 and 1/8th, and the posts are 2.5 inches as per plans.
Im substituting maple for support parts, O,P, and J.I used walnut for the wenge post feet/bottom.
Im going to use whatever I have available for all the slats, and will lay them out in a pattern if I use different species, they are not seen anyway.All hardwoods, maple, ash, oak, birch.
I wasnt sure if I was going to really post up this build, as Im sure Ill show my true lack of talent, but its only wood and I need to experiment with veneers and other things.
Alot of these parts are big and heavy. I had some difficulties jointing and planing some pieces. Got it done. Rough cut lengths with hand held circular saw since its pretty crowded in the garage right now and dont have that much room to lay things out easily.
Id appreciate it if someone could find the 100th anniversary bed and post up a picture of it, Im not sure exactly how to get it to show, and the parts list.
I labeled all my parts so far, have not done much other than cut to size so far.
I was originally going to make raised panels for the panels, but decided to use mdf and with some instruction and help from here, Im going to glue up the sapele pomele veneer and give it a shot.
