    I'd like more info on what looks like a lathe duplicator. The 'chain' devise going to the banjo?

    Great design, and by your past work, you are more than up to the task. This will be an interesting follow-along.

    I was thinking the same thing. Looking forward to seeing this project as it progresses.

    I print off the pattern, a free download of a full size 4 poster bed. Hard part is printing the pattern to a size you can use. Glue the paper pattern to 1/4" board and cut out, sanding edge smooth.

    Built one to match my mom's Bedroom set a bunch of years ago, large like the first pictured, great for displaying dolls but a bit impracticle... IMHO With three Granddaughter (of various sizes) and now a neice... I have several to make, real soon. I have been planning and have been drawn to American Girl Doll sized, (which I believe usues a 20 X 11 mattress.) They have American Girl dolls.
