Always up for a challenge, I said sure! I can rebuild your rustic king size log bed to actually fit the mattress and box spring.
The bed had been made years ago for the customer by a high school shop class. Overall it was quite nicely executed. Sturdy and well fitted it was however 7 inches too wide and 4 inches too long.
I only needed to re-size eight stretchers and reshape sixteen tenons. And while I have a lot of tools - I did not own a log tenoning bit. After a fair amount of research I settled on an adjustable bit to eliminate having to re-drill all of the mortices.
Live and learn!
I cut cradles from some 2x4's and started over.
So now that I own a log rail tenon cutter
- who need fencing?
