Do you have any good tricks to keep a jigsaw blade from drifting side to side at the bottom of the cut? Or best to just avoid thicker cuts?

First off, this particular piece was only 1/2" thick.  But I have had good luck with things like this.  I think a lot has to do with the blades, I have had good results with the Bosch blades and also having a saw that has good power too, it helps because it keeps one from forcing the cut, always better to let the blade do it's thing.

If I didn't know better I would think that was a Philip Morley piece becuase its so clean and you did an exceptional job on wood choice, grain, etc.

Thanks!  Thats pretty high praise to be compared to Phillip Morley.  He is one of my favorite woodworkers and I could only dream of hitting that level.

Light weight and warm when it needs to be. 

I would go that direction in a minute.   I always used down sleeping bags that kept me very warm on some pretty cold back packing trips.  My wife however is one that likes to feel the weight of blankets and such.

 So how much for a 2nd copy for my bedroom?

I like that you like it that much, but there will be no more bed or dining table projects in my small shop.  I am glad I built both of those things but having to constantly move parts to get to the tools I needed to use next takes some of the joy out of the process.

Plus I know you and your wife would find more happiness in a bed built by you.

And then there is the shipping to think about...
