Hanging Bed update

When I last posted about this project we had just started it. The arms were being bent in the forge. Here are a few more pictures of the bed in progress.

                      This is a shot taken of the test fit of the wooden frame into the metal nest. The next step was to have the metal frame powder coated. Below is a picture of one of the halves fresh back from the powder coater. The frame was built in two pieces so that it was a little more manageable to install on the second floor porch.

Here is a picture of the Cypress bed frame.

Here it is installed. Hard to tell it is hanging with the porch being unfinished.

Next is another project for Derek Vanlandingham. It is a Pine cabinet to display a clients trophies.
Derek has a wonderful antique pine cabinet that we borrowed a lot of the details from.

Here is the finished cabinet in the clients home. Hard to believe it is 96" tall. The upper is fitted out with brass poultry wire and a couple of accent lights above the glass shelves. The finish is multiple coats and a couple of different shades of Briwax.
