This project was built over a year and a half. Approximate hours unknown. This project started with just building a bed to satisfy my wife and because I had the plans for it. She wasn't satisfied with just the bed. I ended up making five other pieces to complement the bed. The other parts were built from my own plans. All the furniture is built with red oak. I did a lot of remodeling of my home in Massachusetts. I then moved to Florida and got rid of all my wood working tools. I then received a phone call that I had won a bench saw from Handy Man of America. That opened the door for returning to making furniture.
