Looks great! I like your workbenches too. I wish I had as much room as you so I could have great big tables.
I love working with cherry. Fairly cheap compared to other woods, smells great and is also a beautiful wood. I make a lot of bowls from cherry.

Kinda the opposite of old ads in "The Magazine Antiques" where they would say "rare set of eight chippendale chairs", and repeat the same shot of one chair eight times, maybe reversing 4 of them for balance.
Made ya wonder....

Great looking beds!

John,

Confidence does not come from always being right. It comes from not being afraid to be wrong.
