My sister and brother-in-law recently had their summer place built. There is a lot of natural wood inside for the floors, window frames, walls and ceillings, so, my sister insisted that I fabricate the beds. This is the first in a series of three and is for my niece.

They supplied the wood which is Ash (FrĂȘne in french) and we based the design on a picture found in a magazine.

The bed is very strong. The height of the head board needed to be lower than 35in. because the bed will be placed under a window.

The pictures were taken by my niece when the bed was put togheter for the first time. Since, it was varnished and brought to it’s resting place.

Now the work starts on the two remaining beds …
