that worked like a charm! I sure wish I had that connection still.

He did this bed for $110 complete side rails and all, I couldn't have bought the paint for that.
I sleep on a bed that was made for me by a telephone buddy who liked to do wood work. I agreed to paint a '56 chevy 4 door sedan which was to be a 16th birthday present for his daughter and he was to make me a king size bed with drawers around it. After the deal was made I was advised she was insisting that the car be a different color and 2 toned. I painted the car, jams, trunk and all. She then refused to drive "that big old thing" and he sold it.
The good news is 35 years later I still have the bed.
