  1. Palletwood King Size Headboard

    This is my first commission piece that was completed this past week. It measures 78" x 48" and has white oak posts. It is finished with Min-wax natural stain (1 coat) and 4 coats of spray lacquer. I was pleased with how it tuned out.
  2. New King Size Bed

    The wife wanted a new king size bed to replace the Queen I had made about 8 years ago. She wanted a different style but it had to go with the other furniture already built with the last bed. I came up with this design which has no metal fasteners. I think it looks great with the other...
  3. Shiplap Headboard - a project that I didn't enjoy...

    This is a king size headboard that I built for a neighbor/customer. He and his wife had been looking for a new bed, and couldn't find one that they liked that didn't require a kidney as down payment. The husband - a deputy sheriff - stopped by my garage late one afternoon and asked if I could...
  4. King Size Headboard

    It's been a while since I've built and posted anything but now that the weather has cooled a bit here in Florida I'm back out in the garage kicking up some saw dust. I built a pair of nightstands and needed a headboard to go with them. This is something I drew up quick one night and ran with it...
  5. Walnut Storage Bed

    Finally finished the king size beg to go along with end tables for my daughter. Solid walnut bed with ash slats and Baltic birch drawers. The posts came from an 8 foot 4×8. Scared to death as a prepared to cut it in two.
  6. King Bedroom Suit- Bed, Nightstands, Dresser

    This is my most recent major project-a bedroom suit for our new king-size mattress. I'm not sure what to call the style (maybe you can help), but it's simple and classic, and will certainly last a lot longer than our last discount furniture store set. All the pieces are made from solid poplar...
  7. King Sized Bed

    This bed is primarily walnut with cherry ply panels and mahogany top rails. I found some nice bookmatched cherry ply with some curly figure. I don't know if it shows well in the picture. The walnut overlays o the panels are bookmatched sections that are simply cut to follow the curved grain...
  8. King Size Murphy Bed| Custom

    How about a murphy bed fit for a King. This one was built in January 2016. The face style is called the Excalibur. The Excalibur has arched raised panel doors and a couple false drawer fronts. Because of how wide the door are, I had to make wider than normal rails and styles. We added two...
  9. Burnt Oak Bed Frame

    This is a king sized bed frame that I designed in SketchUp and made with an Oak frame and Sapele panels. There is drawers for storage underneath the mattress and at the head of the bed in place of a drawer I left it open as a cubby. This easily accessible storage has an LED light and outlet with...
  10. Scrollsawing
    It is not often I come on here seeking advice but i am considering doing some scrollsawing in colored plexiglass or lexon. So I was wondering what might be the best blade for doing this? I know that scrollsaw speed is a major factor because you maybe doing more melting than cutting and I also...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've been asked by a friend to loft his king-sized bed approximately 5 1/2' up. My thoughts are that whether a bed is 1' or 6' off the ground, the only real difference is to prevent the racking of the base. It will be flush against two walls, though, so I think I can do this securely by...
  12. Blogs
    Making a Frame and Attaching the Shutters We were given a king size bed frame and mattresses. We previously had a queen, but with two kids hanging out in our bed before bedtime and sometimes even sleeping in the bed it was getting too crowded. My wife's birthday was approaching, so I asked...
