This is Og's Big Bed

Hey, there's not much here yet. That's 'cos it's still under construction...

...but there are couple of small pictures of commissions I did a few years ago.

I've also learnt how to add a Cooliris photo wall - so this nice tool allows you to navigate round my Woodturning photo set from Flickr. Have a play, you'll soon suss out how to navigate... and if you click on an image you'll pull up a larger view, together with any descriptions I've addedd within Flickr - clever, huh?

Alternatively, you might just want to go directly to my Flickr Photostream which gives access to all my albums, not just woodturning.

"For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of the Rephaim; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbah of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man." Deuteronomy 3 v.11
"behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron - Although beds in the East are with the common people nothing more than a simple mattress, bedsteads are not unknown. They are in use among the great, who prefer them of iron or other metals, not only for strength and durability, but for the prevention of the troublesome insects which in warm climates commonly infest wood. Taking the cubit at half a yard, the bedstead of Og would measure thirteen and a half feet, so that as beds are usually a little larger than the persons who occupy them, the stature of the Amorite king may be estimated at about eleven or twelve feet; ....some eminent critics take the Hebrew word rendered "bedstead" to mean "coffin." They think that the king of Bashan having been wounded in battle, fled to Rabbath, where he died and was buried; hence the dimensions of his coffin are given [Dathe, Roos]."
