I made this bed for my 16 year old son out of solid cherry. Joinery within the headboard and footboard is mortise and tenon. The side rails are attached using bed hardware mortised into the rails and headboard/footboard. Finish is just a single coat of Oddie’s oil which worked out great and smells wonderful.
