    I think maybe a finial of some sort might improve the design.

    that i do not know jim, his idea, not mine. i sent him those pics this morning, along with the info from my cutlist program about what it will cost for materials. he is planning on this being quarter sawn white oak, with some sort of carving/engraving he wants to do on the large board in the center. we shall see what we will see after he has seen them.... lol.

    here i thought that this was going to be an easy project, just a head board. i got a call from my dad's friend tonight, it seems that after his wife had seen the sketchup pics, she asked, can we get a foot board too? well, he kind of reminded her that she didn't want a foot board, that she said she'd keep running into it. now it's the full bed, side boards and all now. here's how it looks at the moment. he needs to run this past the boss, and see what she says....
