Yes I made a box joint jig for the table saw and created a first cut template. I got an old 1x42" sander to sand between the teeth and shape the points. I used the ryobi benchtop sander to shape the curves.
I really enjoyed seeing the oak transform from what looked like wood destined for a burn pile to beautiful tabletops. Most of all I enjoyed seeing the excitement and smiles when we delivered them to their new home.
I just kind of designed/built it as I went... its 4x4 for the posts, 2x6 for the mattress rails, and 2x4 for the rest of the frame. I used 1x4s for the mattress supports and a 2x2 attached to the 2x6 rail for the 1x4s to rest on.
Currently I'm working on a vanity, a set a pipe shelves, and two tables sets with matching benches and chairs. Next up is a live edge walnut table and bench. Additionally, I've been playing around with making beard combs with exotic cutoffs I found in a clearance bin.
