I needed a christmas present for my wife ,so I took out the pallet lumber thats been drying for two years. This is what my mind came up with.Had to make a couple of jigs for router to do the dovetail joints for frame cross rails, post later.Raised panels were a pain to sand, thats what started the drum sander build, post soon. Poplar raised panels.Still not sure what the frame is , my best guess, bass wood.

Very nice! I especially like the responds on the ends of the rails,; that has to make for a nice strong connection. Thanks for showing.

Great looking bed, the lines are great on this. Looks very soft on the eyes! I’m sure she loved it.
