    My two sons made this frame for me when I retired. It is made out of wood that was from the farm where I grew up. My Dad had cut it, sawed it and dried it. Then my sons made the frame.

    Love it! Beautiful work to combined with the sentimental aspect - I'm sure it will become and heirloom!

    My dad made me a bed when I was in 8th grade and he used a combination of wood from our old house in AZ and some from the Victorian that we moved into in VA (over 100 years old!). He hand-carved some medallions for the ends. It is beautiful and a great memory for me!

    How cool is it that your sons made it for you. I'd call it a family treasure.
