The mahogany bed I made from door jams off of Craigslist. Real excited till I was told it was not really mahogany but Honduras Mahogany. The design came from Popular Woodworking. I had to purchase a couple of pieces of new Mahogany to finish. Used Tung oil and the support boards for the mattress is made from pine gotten from a set-piece from one of my shows. Learned a lot on building this. The inserts were fitch I also got from craigslist that used 1/4 in the ply to laminate to. One of My first pieces of furniture. I also built two night stands to go with it from small pieces of Mahogany.

Really nice for your first piece of furniture. And it is real, according to Wiki

Swietenia macrophylla, commonly known as mahogany, Honduran mahogany, Honduras mahogany, big-leaf mahogany, or West Indian mahogany, is a species of plant in the Meliaceae family. It is one of three species that yields genuine mahogany timber, the others being Swietenia mahagoni and Swietenia humilis.
