This is a cherry bed I made for my daughter. The inlay was made using maple and purpleheart at the request of my daughter. I cheated and used my Shapeoko CNC router to do the inlay.

Looks great.

Not cheating on the inlay, just using the tools you have.

Nice work. She will have that bed forever. I like all off the slats like that, nice color.

Thanks for all of the comments! In terms of the spindles, I did not mortise them in. I did that on the other beds that I made for my kids, but this time, I cut a dado down the middle and glued in spacers so I didn’t have to cut tenons on the ends of the spindles. It did save me a lot of time and I have to look pretty hard at it to see that I glued in spacers.

Awesome, thanks for that tidbit, I have been considering making an inexpensive pine end table to work on some skills and I like the spindle look.
