... in this bed...
This is one of Einar's projects from last year, making a bed-frame.
I have to be honest with you folks, but I know zip about wood. If I am to believe Einar then this is a relatively easy bed-frame to make.
You need four planks of sturdy wood, four pegs and four "side-wings" which you can decorate or not. This is again a technique found on the Queen's bed on the Oseberg ship.
Our bed is resting on the ground and hides our beds and sleeping bags pretty well, but I suppose the bed could have legs as well.
