Neil's railway sleeper bed

Hi Kilgraney
Well, after a house move and some hard grafting (not to mention lifting several sleepers up and down several flights of stairs), I enclose some pictures of my finished bed: (with assorted titles !)

Thanks for your detailed pictures, showing a great deal of thoughtful planning, determined effort & precise construction. This is an mega solid bed that weighs in at at least a 1/4 of a ton, constructed from super-strong French oak. A great achievement which merits a beer at the very least. This is an olympic bed to support the whole party !
