Project Information

This bed is made of solid white oak, except for the panels, which are white oak plywood. All of the lumber came from the same tree and was purchased from a fellow member of my local woodworking club. There are thirty-eight mortise and tenon joints in the headboard. The design of the headboard is taken from a bed in my sister-in-law's house, and the plan for the platform and frame came from an issue of Woodsmith Shop. The Christmas quilt was made by my talented wife. When all the Covid-19 mess is over, we'll be ready to host some guests.

That is something to be proud of! White oak is only slightly harder than concrete. I love that headboard. Really nice job.

Oh no! I shouldn't have looked, now I have to build one! My wife has been looking for a new bed and we haven't been able to find one we liked, until now. This is beautiful work and a perfect fit for our needs, so, unless I can convince you to send it to Texas, I guess I have found my next project. Just kidding about sending it to Texas Phil.
An outstanding piece, good job!
