Thread: Canopy bed

    Canopy bed

    It is something I rarely do but here is a bit of spindle turning. Each post is of 3 peices doweled together. I can assure you I did not do the sewing. The flat work is all glued up as this wood somes at the most in 6 inch boards. Now comes the dressing table and closet with the same spindles and design. Some little girl will be happy with a Barbie bed.

    Very nice bed, Jim. Love the wood, too. You've very lucky to live and work in woodworking paradise. (You'd probably be bored to tears nowadays if you had to make something from plain ol' poplar or something similar.)

    That's the understatement of the year Jim.

    Great looking bed and can hardly wait to see the rest of the set.

    That's a beautiful bed! You did a great job joining the boards and the spindles look great. I've never heard of pink flame before, but it sure is pretty.
