This rustic bed is from a combination of ambrosia maple split and reglued opposite to give it the natural edge look, and Aspen logs from the mountains in Colorado. My first bed so it took a bit to think out how I would ensure it was solid once put together.

Thanks for the feedback, sorry about the sideways photo, still working on that. Yes, the ambrosia is always an eye catcher.

Very impressive bed.

My only input would be that I might have slightly “domed” the tops of the posts and rounded over the edges of the posts a bit. Those could be some rude awakenings in the middle of the night getting up to use the privy and running into one of those “sharp-ish” edges.

Excellent design and excellent implementation.
Good job!
