It is always a joy to complete a commission and deliver it to its home. Seeing a piece I labored over find its proper place, is one of those rewarding experiences reserved for the small furniture making shops. Larger companies have others to deliver and set-up their work and the connection between maker and customer is diminished. Pictured here is a Pencil Post Bed crafted in Black Cherry. Dry mortise and tenon joints are fastened by bed bolts with brass covers, providing unshakable strength at its corners. Tapered faceted posts, curving headboard and a White Ash mattress support system will provide decades of satisfied use. Finished with my signature hand-rubbed Linseed Oil, Tung Oil and Beeswax mix.
The customer writes: “Every time I walk into my bedroom I think, what a beautiful bed and how beautiful the bed has made the room. So thank you for all your skill and hard work. It really is a breathtaking creation.”
