Oakland, CA checking in

Hi all,
I've been woodworking as long as I can remember, I think I did my first built-in desk for a neighbor when I was about 14.

I started working at a cabinet shop back about 9 years ago. I've done a fair share of furniture as well. I have been self-employed for 4 years, and currently am shifting my business model toward production kitchen furniture and accessories. Because I have had to downsize my once luxurious shop into my 11x17 detached garage, I'm looking for a lot of new solutions. Hope you can help me, and maybe I will have some suggestions for you.

Here is my website

Hi dustboy, I enjoyed checking out your website. I especially like the Torque Coffee Table. I am looking to make myself a platform bed a little similar (maybe not too much) to the Atarae Bed you have on your site. I am new to woodworking but have a good bit of diy experience. I am going to post a picture of the bed I would like to build and was hoping that if you had time could you look at it and shoot me a few pointers on how to get it built correctly.

Ricky, I'd be happy to help. Unfortunately I'll probably never build that bed again, since it doesn't have a good way to disassemble. The Atarae really only works if you have a big sliding door into the bedroom.
