Making drawings from Photos
« on: April 24, 2018, 10:43:31 AM »
I found a photo of a bed I want to make on a furniture manufacturer's website. I called them to see if they would sell plans. They didn't have plans but they were nice enough to send me several photos of the bed post carvings. I can handle the other bed details such as the headboard and footboard but would really like a drawing of the bed post. Can someone covert these photos into a full size drawing? I'd be glad to pay fee. Sam Rhodes Walnut411@comcast.net

Sam,
Dog on it!
What size bed are you building?
What material are you working with?

Jeff, it will be walnut. I have straight grained 16/4 for the posts and figured walnut for the headboard. The rest of the furniture in the bedroom is walnut as well. It will be king sized. I’m just looking to convert the post photos into a drawing. I’ve made a couple of beds before so I think I can handle the rest.
