Bunk Beds

After months of talking about it, I finally built bunk beds for Luke and Graham. The lighter wood is maple, the dark wood is walnut. I'm really pleased with the way they turned out, except that the mattresses are higher than I thought, and essentially hide the headboard on the top bunk. Also, Jana hates the sheets that Luke picked out because she says they're too bright and loud (she liked them OK until she unwrapped them and, as she claims, they took on at least 2 new degrees of neon). She's probably right, but Luke's enthusiasm about the whole set up is pretty intense and nothing that I'd want to tamper with. I'm also a bit concerned with the fan being so close to Luke's head- maybe we'll take it out and put it in another room.

Step Stool

I built this step stool for my friend Oscar. It turned out really great! It's built from solid walnut, with a polyurethane finish.
