Double bed

Since we moved to our house, Teres and I have been sleeping on a mattress on the floor, so I decided to make a wooden bed.  I bought some off-cuts of Pine from a local saw-mill which cost me £20.  To remove some of the bark from the off-cuts I had to build a shaving horse

I did a lot of shaping of the wood using my knife

Here is a series of pictures of the beds construction, beginning with the base of the bed

Teres has started carving name signs and has made one for the bed

  1. Thats wonderful Kev! You are skilled man.
    Also a post about how you build the shaving horse would be interesting!


  2. A green woodworker and woodcarver I knew you were mate but a skilled carpenter to boot as well.

    All three together I think you may have found an extra line of work mate.

    A few pics of the shave horse construction would be good as it is on a list of jobs to do for me.
