After that I shaped them up somewhat on the 12" miter saw. This pair is rough sanded...much more to go yet.

Earlier today a friend of mine from the B. C. Multihull Society came speeding by in his cat. I barely had time to get a pic.

OK, this morning, I took a shot at attaching the four lower frame boards together. I used the aluminum angle for that and it seemed to work OK.

There will be a plywood base for the mattress going on top of that lower frame - and of course I didn't take a pic. I'll get that in the morning.

Plus tomorrow I hope to be able to cut the big dovetails for the stretchers as well as do the final cutting to length and so on for the top platform boards.

They are already planed and so forth.

Messin' around on un-grouted floor tile is risky business. The corners of the tiles don't always have enough support until a little grout is squeezed in under them.

Just sayin'

Messin' around? Who's messin' around? I'm still building the bed!

Promise I will be careful and get the grout in there very shortly.

Yow okay. I suppose that may have been a suppository remark. Consider yourself duly scolded...and carry on.

I made a couple of big dovetails at each end of the stretchers. They are left unglued for future dis-assembly for moving.

Here the platform is upside down.

The plywood strips are for re-inforcing purposes. I think I will need to make some sort of central support to minimize any potential sag.

When the platform is turned upside down, the plywood will just fit inside the edges of the frame - loosely - which will properly locate the platform.

Once in its' final resting place, I will screw it down.

This morning I added some tarpaper to the light/plant holder thing at the top of the stairs. And nailed on the plywood top as well.

I might have commented before about sticking with one tape measure when you are doing precise measuring and cutting.

I still don't know whether or not I goofed this morning and used two tapes...one thing I do know, is that they don't read the same.

Bud will be glad to know that I abandoned the unfinished living room tile area as a work station.

I dis-assembled the bed and took it upstairs piece by piece.

Here is the re-assembled frame.

Later on I put the plywood platform together - upside down.

There will be about twelve dozen screws keeping the arbutus platform pieces firmly in place, and it is really only practical to drill the holes while this assembly is downside up.
