Big bed, small finish room

My finishing room is an old Trailer house living room. 10’x30’. Normally that’s fine for most projects. Not so much a king size bed. 86” long, 84” wide and 61” tall. In the past I have made a storage chamber in the center of the bed. This is the first time I have lined it with plywood.

Made of Beetle Kill Pine with satin lacquer finish.

Thank you for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Nice work. The lumber flows together. That’s one big bed.

Beautiful job Monte. I look forward to your projects.

My wife wants a BKP Morris chair glider. If I ever get over my pre Thanksgiving surgery and this head cold I might get started.
