bed time!

After a few days away at James's workshop for framing the jointed bed components returned to the chaircreative workshop. This project was designed & sculpted (head board & foot board assemblies) by Alun Heslop whilst the frame jointing was carried out by fine furniture maker James Huddleston.

We both completed the final fettling & finishing of line edge profiles, bridge cuts under bed rails & the pinning of the joints. Assembly & dis-assembly has been taken in mind whilst designing the bed as it is of course quite heavy so a take apart option makes for ease of transportation.  Beech & elm are the chosen woods to compliment other pieces within the complete project - console & bedside tables - designed & created by Alun Heslop. Local Councillor, V.I.P, the right honourable Mr D. Barker can be seen inspecting quality control of the bed framing progress.

Oil finishing is next,

Bed slats will be from ash wood.

Will post more pics of final finished bed when complete.
