Twin over Twin Rohan Bunk Bed by Lupas-Deva
Twin over Twin Rohan Bunk Bed
Twin over twin Rohan bunk bed with drawered stairs and dresser. This took three week with almost 500 drilled hole and dowels. I did most of the work until we started running out of time and needed heelp with the stairs and dresser.

Archery Bow wip 2 by Lupas-Deva
Archery Bow wip 2
Show the steps to get the basic bow shape. Still A LOT of work just to get them floor tillered, let alone tillered per poundage. They are hickory bows.

A lot of steady handed band saw work to get the back of the bow and side profile the right shape.

Boot Jack Commission by Lupas-Deva
Boot Jack Commission
I was asked to make a set of three boot jacks for a friend. At first I wasn't sure what it was but I was shown their old one and after finishing a Rohan bunk bed a simple boot jack was easy.

I had enough hardwood planks laying around so I made them out of Maple, Hickory, and Mahogany. I had plenty of scrap leather and some brass tacks. I tried upholstery tacks but tat didn't work, and I learned that leather has a bit of stretch to it.

She was quite pleased with them.

Just saw your hat design with what looks like fish tail on the end. Very cool... I was wondering if you would sell up to 4 of these and how much you would charge? I've left a comment and message and haven't heard back from you yet! Hope this gets to you....
Thanks,

James

No problem. We have our own custom wood furniture business, so I like looking at original wood products.
