Platform style bed, headboard, and two nightstands.

1. The King bed is mostly 19mm African (Khaya) Mahogany combo core plywood with 15mm solid edge band on the bottom and 6mm edge band on the sides of all pieces. It has two pull out drawers at the foot of the bed.

2. The headboard is mostly 25mm African Mahogany with a couple of 19mm combo core plywood with edge banding on the outsides.

3. The night stands have a solid 25 mm top and 19mm combo core sides and bottom. The drawer fronts are solid wood as well. There is a wireless phone charger where the circles are.

Great set – and the Hip Cat approves. LOL I love those floating night stands – such an iconic look. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you!

@ThatWeirdUncle That’s a great question. It was sporadic but if i had to guess a total of 72 hours, probably 20 for the design (had to be approved by my lady), 4 hours for material acquisition, 18 hours for the bed, 20 for the side tables (trying to get the wireless charger working and the drawers have electrical outlets inside all added to the time), and 10 hours for the headboard.
This doesn’t include wiring in the bedside lights, time for glue and epoxy to dry, testing different glitters to find one we liked.

Have your say...
