Maybe 5 years ago i made some bunk beds for the two oldest kids and then I had two more. My girls are now 3 and 7 and while all of them like sleeping in the same room my eldest girl said she wanted a bed of her own. We talked about it and she said that a hanging bed would be fun so i made a hanging bed. Then my 3 yr old wanted a bed of her own so i made that too. In the end they all sleep in one room or the other still.The main sections of the beds are made of pine with the ladder and legs made of pallet oak. The boys bed was held together with pocket hole fasteners and i worried about the longevity of it but it was early in my wood working career. For the girls i decided to do mortise and tenon joints all around and well, they at least look better IMO.Pallet Wood
Well here is a new project and it got me back in the shop but slowly does it . I wanted to address some issues and I think I accomplished my goal . I made a video that you can watch on YOU TUBE and I think it will explain the projct better then I could here in words. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJpdcetPtIk&t=70sPlease let me know what you think of this prototype . .I will try to post a build video sometime soon That will have some additional features . Thanks Klaus / Kiefer
I have a crank bait I made early on that has a really nice action, a deep thumping movement. I'm duplicating it with different paint patterns. This one is a sort crayfish pattern sort of. Made of cedar. Everything is handmade except the hooks.This is a video of the entire process.
