I promised Linda that I’d complete a king-size bed for Andy’s room before Andy and Lauren arrived home for Christmas — and I came through! This was an interesting project. The idea was to make a mortise and tenon bed frame to support a plywood platform and memory-foam mattress – with fabulous stacked spherical posts. [...]
Who wouldn’t fall instantly in love with the amazing, multi-talented recording and visual artist, Maggie Rose Mull? Certainly not I, and I am not alone (if you can unravel all those multi-negatives)!
