Musical Beds

Raw Materials

Raw Materials

Opal and Agathe have been talking in their most persuasive voices to their favourite photographer. They have seen and sat upon a bed he made a few years ago, and now they are begging for another.  A small donation to the coffee fund of a local luthier resulted some head and foot boards just the right size for Hitty.

A simple bed is made by drilling and pegging the ends into the bed platform…

 

Bed Rails

Or, for a stronger (but more fiddly) bed, rails are pegged and glued to the end boards, and a platform then attached to the rails…

 

 

Perfect Size

…Opal and Agathe say the beds are PERFECT either way, though a little gluey just at present…

…The old bed is so lovely, the block sisters can’t wait for the new bed frames to be done, and mattress and bed-clothes produced…

Melodious Dreams

In fact all the Hittys love these beds – just imagine what melodious dreams will ensue!

  1. The beds are charming! And the mattress that shows in the last photo is a perfect miniature! Lucky, lucky girls!

    • The bridges work really well – I was inspired when my son’s double bass needed it’s bridge replacing, just scaled it down and got a couple of cello bridges, which I think are perfect Hitty bed ends!
