This Queen bed in Walnut was built during my first year of apprenticeship in Furniture making a year ago. My goal for the first year was to enter a piece (and have it accepted) in the Texas Furniture Makes Show in Kerrville, TX. I was elated to hear it was accepted, and later, even more elated to win the Best Apprentice award, and then astonished to receive a Judges Special Award, which they created upon discovering that I was a first year apprentice. To receive that level of validation was the best confirmation that I was on the right path.
