closing the ends


Finally I have some time to get back to the four poster beds I was working on. These trimmings will become the top rails on the head and foot boards. But I wanted the ends to be molded too. So here's how I did it;


I've cut some wood to fit (real tight) and try to match the grain as well.


Then cutting away the excess, and creating the hollow shape first. 


Giving it a little step, before cutting the round part that follows.


And then the molding goes all the way round as I designed it.

  2. Hi Debora! Your techniques are so precise and your abilities are so admirable! The railing looks just perfect! I can't tell where the join is at all! I can't wait to see the entire bed!

  6. Thank you so much for your appreciation! I wanted to show it because this was just one of those things where I didn't knew how to build it until I reached that stage. I had thought of mitering the ends with some extra molding. Seemed the most obvious thing to do, but this way is far less tricky because I knew I could recreate the shape of the moldings freehand. So now it's just as neat, if not neater :) I was at it again last night, until that dangerous now-you're-gonna-mess-up-hour. So; done 18 ends and only 2 more to go. :)
