Pine Bed for Quinn

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Pine Bed for QuinnHey Lumberjocks,
A request from my daughter – the oldest needs her first big bed. Pretty simple and not a Fine Woodworking cover project, but nonetheless. I bought 10 each, 1” x 12” x 12' and cut everything to rough size and then began to laminate the four legs, the foot rail, the head rail and the side rails to the rough thickness. I then planed all the pieces to final dimension. I then tapered the bottom of the legs 7 degrees. Assembly was pretty straight foreword- pocket screws and Titebond 2. The requirement was to have the top of the mattress 20” inch off the floor – no higher, so that set the assembly sequence. The mattress has one inch of clearance on each side front and back, side to side and that seems to be working. Not pictured are side safety rails that match the design.
Thanks for checking out the Pine bed for Quinn.
Greg

Western Red Cedar Planter Boxes

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Western Red Cedar Planter BoxesSo I wanted to build some western red cedar planter boxes to add to my garden space. After making the first one, I decided to take a few photos and post it in some local Buy and Sell groups, thinking maybe I could sell a half dozen or so and that would pay for all the wood for the ones I want for myself.A month and a half later, I;m still trying to keep up with all the orders, including some custom sized larger ones. I've sold nearly a hundred so far but still have not had time to make some to keep for myself. Well, that is a good problem to have. Been having a lot of fun building these.

Experimental Prototype of Segmented Pen

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Experimental Prototype of Segmented PenThis is my first attempt at a segmented pen. I made it from some scrap pieces of walnut and the cut off from an acrylic pen blank. The white spacers came from a hotel room key card.I like the way it turned out, but I think I can do better on the fit and finish. I plan to disassemble it and use the pen kit on another try at a segmented pen blank.
