American Doll beds for my girls

I know this is not a typical HR project, but I thought you might like it anyway.

In the blogs http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/PaBull/blog/series/1045 I showed a little of the construction of the beds for the doll of my two daughters dolls. My wife will take it from here and make all the bedding, quilts and drapes. These were 2008 Christmas presents for two of my daughters.

I measured an American doll bed from a friend and used the design from one of the FWW magazines:

Super job. I used to make something very much like yours the only difference was I used store bought spindles for the posts and arched my canopy top (which made it harder for my wife to sew the canopy though) I really like yours. You could probably sell those real easy.
