I’ve been lurking for several years now and finally decided to take the plunge with my first post. It’s a set of floating night stands, head board, and king size platform bed I made for my wife. It only took 3 years from promise to completion. Made from 3/4” birch ply, 3/4” oak ply, solid oak for the trim, koa for the pulls. The bed has 6 drawers with full extension slides. The stands have cheap 3/4 slides I had laying around, they are mounted to the wall on full extension slides so you can access the drawer and move them out of the way to make the bed Finish is 3 coats of water based semi gloss poly.

Thanks Paul

Wow! Well done. No need to merely lurk with work like that.

A beautiful bedroom set up! Like the wonderful design, use of contrasting woods and the additional storage under the bed. Great job!

Beautiful job.i love platform bed.The platform bed is one of the most welcome additions to the current era of bedroom furniture. Platform beds are great for complementing any decor, but are especially well suited for rooms that are going for a simple feel.
