This is a bed that I made for my dad and for some reason this is the only pic I could find. I really need to go over to his house and get some finish photos. Any who, as you can see this is the base for the mattress. As you can also see this is the basement I used to work out of. Pretty tight. I had to make the base two peices in order to get it out of the basement. The bed is made from cherry with walnut beading. The inner frame is made from 3/4” plywood. It has four bearing slide drawers on each side. I believe I finished it with and oil. Not sure what though. Hopefully I can get more pics so you can see the head board and finished bed.

Looks nice and solid. It also reminds me my uncle who is a professional woodworker. One of his first commissions was big enough that when it came time to deliver, it didn’t fit through the door of his shop.

Moral of the story: “Measure twice” isn’t just for cutting.
