A Curly Maple Queen Size Bed
Yesterday, Sam and I delivered a queen size bed to a client in Saratoga Springs. She liked a cherry Sheraton style single bed from our website ... We expanded it to a queen and it all worked out fine ..... The curly maple was particularly nice. Lookin' good now that it's all finished ... Click the photos to enlarge them ...
Will roughed out the legs using our Vega duplicator which he tuned up to produce absolutely INCREDIBLE results right off the cutter. This minimized the time he had to spend cleaning them up after the duplicating process .
That's a four foot one piece shaving from the curly maple posts he turned
Action !! What he did exactly was grind the cutter to a sharp angled point rather than the small radius that comes standard on the diamond cutters. The difference in the results were incredibly dramatic ... the chips flew ...
Trevor made a sample headboard in mdf to confirm the stretched design ..
Drilling the bed post bottoms for the tenons on the turning tops
The bed assembled with the mocked up headboard
Considering the foot post proportions ... good to go
Better photos of the completed bed later ...
