Default My son didn't forget everything from home......

Just got back from NC visiting the son and family. Grandkids!!! Anyway he has limited space, time, and tools, but managed to make a full sized bed for his oldest, who recently turned 4. Took a while, but he found some rough western cedar and did a LOT of sanding. He had all the pieces made and polyed (no stain) so the two of us put together. Kinda neat experience.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Nice bed. But I don't recall the phone ringing, with you calling so we could go out for coffee.

Hope I don't sound like nosy smart arse John,but you aught to tell your son to shave/sand the sharp corners off any areas where the young man could hurt himself. It is a terrific bed & any boy or girl would love it. best wishes, James.

Really nice. I agree on doing some roundovers. I always have bruises on my thigh from running into the sharp corners at the foot of my bed. Getting up in the dark, that happens. But I bet the little guy loves it.

Good John, and you and your son did good on the bed. Your grandson looks like he is going to enjoy that a lot.I agree with the sharp corners on cedar can give off some nasty slivers. I love the grain of cedar.

Son did it all (with a little assistance from the little guy). I just helped assemble the pieces. Don't think he even thought about rounding the corners. Of course, then he would have an excuse to get a router.
