58/365: Yesterday I milled the poplar bed frame slats and the two center support pieces that keep the slats from flexing over the length. This was the only place in my house to assemble such a large piece and was not able to get both tables in position. I have always designed bed frames like this with a high density of slats so only the mattress is required and no box spring. The upstairs floors in my house are pecan. I milled the flooring myself from a huge tree I saw fall over on its own while I was sitting at a coffee shop.
57/365: This is a 14 drawer chest of drawers where the case is through dovetailed black walnut. It sits on a finger jointed wenge base and all the curly maple drawer fronts were resawn from a single board of curly hard maple. The mortise and tenon drawer frames are let into case with sliding dovetails. The front piece of the drawer frame is wenge and the secondary wood of the frames as well drawer sides/backs are sycamore. The pulls are also wenge and are mortised into the drawer fronts. Waterlox is the finish. 130cm high x 100cm wide x 55 cm deep.
56/365: This is a mahogany CA king bed frame with wenge inlays in the head and footboard stiles on both sides of them. I have been using this asymmetric hour glass shape for over 20 years. Tomorrow I will try to get the side rails and all the slats and center support pieces mated to the head and footboard. The matching bedside tables have angled through dovetailed drawers that did not help my dyslexia when I was laying them out and cutting them. More than one D’oh was uttered.
