The slabs then took a ride with Tony to the kiln in Watsonville and underwent two drying rounds. They were brought back to my shop but before the real work began I did something else.
The parts were delivered to the finisher in my truck. I was greatly relieved to be rid of the project as it was becoming all consuming. I was also several thousand dollars over budget so seeing it depart was a great relief.
The Finisher was really good at what he does. The bed was finished in a timely manner and then delivered to the client. There was some post delivery electrical work to be done by Tony. Finally a photographer was called in to take pictures and Vwala, here is the image of the log become a bed.
