The bed is finally done!

You may want to sit down, I don't want you to faint when I announce that the bed I was making is finally finished!

I think I blogged about it around a dozen times - from the leg lamination to the tapering to the carving to .... well.... everything along the way and in between.

One of the great things about this blog is that I'll run into someone at the lumberyard or in a restaurant and they'll ask how one of my projects is progressing. When I get a puzzled look on my face, they'll explain that they've been following the progress on this blog. How cool is that?

These pictures aren't as nice as they could be, but at least you have the opportunity to see everything put together.

Don't you thinking people fall into one of two categories - either you make your bed each morning, or you don't.

Which category do you fall into?

Gotta love the saltillo tile - it gives the room a rosy glow.

Thanks to everyone who offered opinions and comments along the way - especially my classmates in Dennis Patchett's carving class. They gave me valuable feedback while I was choosing a design to carve on the headboard.

I've made two beds in the last year or so, and I have to say - I really enjoyed designing and building them. Makes me wish I had another bedroom in my home that needs a bed! Maybe I should offer a bed making class?

Thanks to everyone for your support and feedback. I truly learn as much from you guys as (hopefully) you do from reading this blog.
