Project Information

This is a platform bed that was completed on July 16, 2008. The wood that was used for this project is maple and is finished in a cappuccino finish. This is a platform style bed and only mattress, no foundation, will be used. For this reason the slats are constructed with just a couple inches of space between them. The slats also have a slot that they are inserted into to keep the spacing uniform and easy to install.

I also built case goods to match (dresser, night sands, and chest). They are built in a simple contemporary style with slab drawer fronts and squared off edges.

Very nice job, Chris. I like the finish. So does this bedroom set fold up into a suitcase or something? :] Thanks for the post.

Hey Chris, thanks for sharing. Would you mind detailing the finish. What stain/dye, sealer, finish? I really like the look and would like to do something similar on a hard maple table I am working currently.

dsb1829,
I take a brown dye from Sherwin Williams and thin it way down (I think about 50:1; thinner,dye). spray that on with a cup gun. I then took a wiping stain Walnut from minwax and applied that. It was then followed by a couple coats of lacquer.

Practice on the dye coat you want to keep a wet edge when applying. It dries in seconds.

woodworm,
Customer didn't order a headboard. They were after just a platform look.
