From the workshop

     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 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

Now off to make saw dust/scraps!
Happy stitching.

Good morning Debbie.....I've been thinking a lot about that bed lately, but haven't asked and think I'm almost as anxious to see the finished piece as you must be to have it sitting in your bedroom, where it will take it's rightful place of honor. It seems that Sir Old Man is as much of a perfectionist regarding his craft as you are about your, and that's definitely a VERY good thing. It's raining here, so definitely a sewing day!

What a piece of beauty that bed is becoming. Of course I thought it was a piece of beauty when you first started showing it to us. The Buzz Saw quilt is going to be the perfect, final addition to the bed. Sanding it down again must have been a bit discouraging but the final satin feel was probably worth it all.

So beautiful. I would be excited too!

Such incredible work! I can tell by the look of it that the wood is ultra smooth.
Can't wait to see it assembled. Sir Old Man does quality work--as do you. : )

Wow, tell him he does nice work, :) I'm so happy to see progress again, it's beautiful and I can't wait to see it all done with that gorgeous quilt on it.
