Remember the bed?
Unfinished wood laid out awaiting the finishing. Then the problems with the finishing during the summer months, and Sir Old Man had to sand it all down again.
We have finish on all the pieces.....now comes the assembly!
I only wish you could run your hand over this wood. It feels like satin.....and smooth as glass.
This photo is truer to the warm rich color of the wood now.
Each slat in the head board and foot board has to be fitted into position. They will be free floating---not glued down---to allow for expansion due to humidity. Sir Old Man will be gently tamping them into their appointed spots today. I tried fitting a couple of them.....not exactly easy as you would think. Things must be aligned just right for each one to slip into place.
There are top pieces that will be added to each section. Once they are added, we are looking at the home stretch. Only the side rails remain to be have one more sanding!
Can you tell I am excited? Now, if I can remember where I stored the Buzz Saw quilt for this new bed....lol.
Now off to make saw dust/scraps!
