More Than I Expected

I started on a woodworking project this weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve made anything and I need a new bed, so I figured I might as well make one. I’ll let someone else make the mattress; I’m just making the frame. I spend most of Friday and Saturday working on it. So far, all I’ve got to show for my work are some sore muscles and four bed posts. I really expected it would go quicker than this. I’ve still got the bulk of the headboard and footboard to cut. The sides are simpler, but not without their challenges. What I thought was a two weekend project may take me more than a month by the time it’s all said and done.
