Duct tape removed!

   This weekend  Sir Old Man removed the duct tape and uncovered the fuming cage.  You can see that he was safety aware and wore the respirator.  We were anxious to see the wood color.



   This is one of the rail supports--I think.  The wood has developed a reddish hue underneath the ashy appearance.







 
   The color is a little truer in this photo.  Once this "jig saw puzzle" of pieces get assembled, the 3 part finish gets applied and sanded in.  Then the patina really develops.  Can you tell I am excited to get there?



   Yet, the bed will be delayed slightly.  Sir Old Man's father died today at the age of 94.  He had lived a long, full life.   Missionary, pastor,  machinist, wood worker----just  a few of his endeavors.   We are thankful this end was not prolonged, yet the pain is still felt.

  4. So sorry about your loss. Even when they have reached the point that they are happy to go, we are left with the hole in our hearts. Praying for peace for you.
    I am very excited to see the wood when it is stained and the bed when it is assembled. I hope you will be sharing.

  6. Oh Debbie, I'm so sorry. His father must have been so proud to see his son follow in his footsteps and turn into such a good man.

  7. Losing a loved one, no matter what their age, is still very painful. We can celebrate their life, and the fact that they live a long, happy and productive life, but the emptiness of their loss will always be with us. My father passed away a couple of years ago at age 104, but I feel his loss every day, and still miss him.

    Please tell Mr. Old Man that the world is waiting for the unveiling of his latest creation. lv2bquilting2@comcast.net

  14. So sorry to hear of your loss. I loved my FIL he was a lot of fun. He died at almost 91. Long livers on my hubby's side.
    I love that your FIL was a minister. For some reason that makes me smile. (I always thought our oldest would be one... he really is the least likely now. The second son is more compassionate.)
    Thanks for sharing...
    Hugs
