Made a crude trundle bed for moms attic room so all the grand kids can pile up at her house. Locust/oak barn wood from my place, some old door jambs I tore outta my house for the rails, and some chinesium Lowes plywood and 1x's for the panels. I used some bed rails brackets off Amazon that actually work really nice. All the painted pieces were sprayed with Sherwin William PreCatalyzed lacquer. I found a box of decorative headed cut nails hiding on grandpas old store so they got used to attach the caps on the headboard and footboard.

Wife wanted a shelf above the sink so she could have a place for all her succulents/air plants. Put this together in a couple hours. 1" oak board. Bullnose on the front. I built and routed the shelf supports on the router table. Finished in tung oil. Perfect fit between the cabinets as well.

Nice work! How do yall decide who sleeps on the bottom?

The smallest or the slowest kids, of course! I actually just finished it a few nights ago and put it up there yesterday. We will see how it plays out in about 2 weeks. The trundle part is actually just gonna be storage for two more mattress....no need to waste good romp room space with useless bed frames.

Well, I've been busy. Got back into making sawdust pretty heavily the last few weeks. A buddy of mine and I went in on some 4/4 walnut and 6/4 ambrosia maple and made a desktop(for a built-in for me) and a bartop for him. I elected to do black epoxy on some of the bigger cracks, he didn't. I think they both turned out awesome.

We then decided we needed some shelves and he wanted a coffee table. Picked out some more walnut and got to work. He found a very nice crotched walnut slab for his table and I found a nice piece with some live edge.

We stained everything with Rubio Monocoat Oilplus 2c in a walnut finish. It's pricey, but its amazing. One coat and done, no issues with streaking etc.

Coffee table finished...

And his finished bartop and shelves. We are going to add another shelf in between his cigar humidor and beer fridge in the future. He likes his whiskey and bourbon....

Still waiting on some brackets to finish my shelves out and they will be complete.
