Last time we posted a blog titled "Build a Table in 60 Seconds" we got a lot of flack from readers who expected this literally. Of course, it was a 60-second video of a guy building a table that probably took weeks to build.

I can't imagine anyone we'd be associated with here at Fine Woodworking building a piece of furniture in such record time (even Frank Klausz, who can cut hand-cut dovetails in three minutes).

But thanks to the magic of cinema, I can show you how to MAKE a bed in a minute. Catch this quick silent film we put together and see how I assembled the 'Morris' bed and finished it off with sheets and pillow cases. It's the free conclusion of How to Build a Bed.

Thanks for watching!

mind you the other half usually then remakes it!)
