So what am I doing you ask? Well, I am attempting to make a Toddler Farmhouse Bed from Knock-Off Wood. (I just wanted to add that I first saw this site from Samantha when she made a super cute bench.)
Have I ever made anything before, well . . . not really. I have made a hearth cover, but nothing really in the line of true furniture. In fact this is the first time I have successfully used a hammer (successfully used very loosely. See below)!
Don’t all serious contractors have blood blisters?
Anyway, the pile of wood was yesterday evening work. And below is what I had by the end of today. A more experienced furniture builder would probably be finished by now. A more experienced builder wouldn’t have had to make three trips to the hardware store already, and would have known that you can’t leave your drill battery plugged in all the time. And an experienced builder would have known how to countersink screws. Needless to say the nice hardware salesman and I are becoming fast friends.
Tomorrow I will be done! Hopeful wishing?
