I've been building furniture full-time for 21 years and have made more than 1,000 pieces, including dozens of beds.But until recently I had never built a sleigh bed.So when a friend and long-time customer asked me to build one for her, I had some research to do.
The nicest one I found was designed and built by William Turner and featured in FWW #91 (pp.46-51).To my eye, it was all a sleigh bed should be.It had classic lines, style, grace.The only problem was that it took 1,200 hours to build.
My client's budget dictated that the bed be built in less than 100 hours.So I had to capture the essence of a sleigh bed, but build it efficiently...
