1. Woohoo! I was commenting to my wife recently that I wanted to build a headboard and frame for our bed, and you kind folks post this project. We’ve loved all of Paul’s designs so far, can’t wait to dig in to this one.

    Wsddfr to help me with the list with you and I have a wonderful time with you and I really like it or you to go rye and I need to r a few y u have to be the he Dr great to have the chief of one Jesus of urban tree in a wonderful

  3. When I saw the bed head in the background I thought it was wood held together with blue plastic screws. I thought you were loosing the plot Paul. I really like the concept, Thick solid bottom frame and sides do it for me. Thanks again Paul.

  4. I’m building a baby crib for my expecting wife. The posts, stiles, and rails are oak. I wanted a darker wood for the raised panels and slats to contrast the oak. I made the mistake of sale shopping and purchased Cumaru. The main structure was done completely my hand. Rip sawing 6/4 oak to width didn’t pose a problem although it took time to cut about 80 feet of it. I even hand shaped the rear top rail with no problem. When it came to ripping the 4/4 Cumaru, I felt defeated. I did manage to rip one slat but it was like sawing concrete. When it came to planing and squaring the saw kerf, it was a complete failure. I could get two or three decent passes and then the iron was shot. I sharpened up, tested on the oak, and it would plane smooth as glass. Switched back over to the Cumaru and made a few passes, the iron was beat. Defeated, I had to switch to a table saw – baby is coming in a few weeks.

    My question is, Is there a Janka hardness that Paul won’t work above? Thinking about economy of energy and excessive wear on tools…

  5. Timothy,

    It’s not just the Janka hardness. Cumaru also has interlocking grain and a high silica content. The wood is in the realm of Ipe and is often used as a substitute for lignum vitae. Hard, tough stuff.
    Anybody who works this stuff commercially will break out the carbide power tools and belt sanders. Working it by hand with O1 edge tools is just asking for frustration.

          1. Thank your for the info. I didn‘t mean to push. I will watch the videos carefully again 🙂.
            A big thank you to the whole team for all the great content. I do enjoy every single video. Woodworking would be completely different for me without all the knowledge from Paul ❤️.

      1. Respectful note to the team, I would like to express my disappointment with how far behind drawings are lagging projects. For those wishing to build to Paul’s design (not just watching for entertainment), a drawing is absolutely critical to getting started. I find being able to review the drawings on the older projects before watching the videos helps me wrap my mind around what Paul is about to teach us, and I can better relate to all of his points throughout the build. Without the drawing, the videos have less value.

        At the very least, a copy of Paul’s cut-list posted on the intro page would be a big big help!

        Sorry for leaving a critical comment, I really do appreciate all the team has done and the immense trove of value in all of the WWMC content! Also, the recent drawings, such as the drinks cabinet, and very nice! I can certainly appreciate the amount of work in them!

        1. I would like to second this.
          for a very, very long time the response from the team has been words to the effect “the drawings are coming”.
          even if I am not going to make oneof the projects, the drawings are important to me to be able to “get my head around” what Paul is trying to achieve…

          All of our heads work in different ways, so please value those of us that needs these drawings. It’s not just about not being able to work things out for ourselves.



          1. If you read some of his other social media you will find he is working hard to catch up. Put up two the first part of the week i believe.
