  1. I like the tent idea though. Maybe I could rig something up with plastic sheeting and put a little heater in it. Thanks for the idea!
  2. True but it's not a single stall unfortunately. The ceiling is open and connects to 9 other garages. Since heat rises I would have to either make a ceiling or heat the whole building. Neither of which I'm interested in doing. I may experiment though with a small heater and see how much I can get the top to rise. Maybe it will be enough to get me started in April instead of May.
  3. I would love to work on this thing right now, but also can't afford anything to go wrong. It's one of those better safe than sorry situations. Especially since black cherry wood was probably not as expensive 100 years ago as it is today Another downside to my situation is that I live in a two bedroom apartment with two toddlers. I can't just stick stuff in the basement and after my last project, my wife isn't going to give up the kitchen table again for 3 days. It's either my 9 x 19 unheated garage or nothing I'm afraid. Really appreciate all the advice though!
  4. Thanks for all of the comments and advice. I think the general consensus is to either bring the temp up or wait. Looks like I'm going to be waiting til May. Thanks again!
  5. Hello, folks, I have a quick question concerning joints and how long you can leave them "dry" before gluing. I have started working on a king size bed frame made of black cherry and am trying to save some time. My workshop (garage) is not heated and seeing as Minnesota weather is still in the 30s at night, I cannot do any gluing. I have thought about doing all the joint work and then putting everything together with no glue while its cold, then glue it all up once the weather gets warmer. My worry is that the wood and joints will change as the weather warms and my work will be wasted. As you can tell, I am very new to jointing in general as most of my experience is with framing and general construction. Would appreciate any advice you can give me! Thanks!
