Tiger Bed

This was my first piece of furniture, the Tiger Bed. Carved in Pine, which isn't very good wood to carve with, and constructed in a style not too dissimilar to beds found in ancient Egypt.

The layout is much simpler than the Lion bed (see right hand menu). It was painted mainly with woodstains but I used oil paint for the nose and teeth.

Here are some pictures during the later stages of construction. These pictures are before the bed had been waxed.

 Here is the finished bed in the bedroom along with a chest of drawers that accompanied it.

This is the accompanying chest of drawers, again constructed and relief-carved in Pine.

The Tiger, prior to being captured!
