  1. Spalted maple/ebonized poplar bed

    This was a "commissioned" piece for my inlaws. I ebonized the poplar using black TransTint dye and India Ink. First coat Dye/ink in Zinsser Seal coat. Second coat Dye/ink in 50% ethanol. Third coat Dye/ink in seal coat again. I ended with a few coats of Arm-R-Seal.

  3. Cherry Trundle Bed

    My son needed a new twin sized bed, so we decided to build him a cherry trundle frame. It became a father and son project, and my wife helped a great deal as well. The headboard and footboard feature gently curved stiles, and solid cherry panel construction. A pair of xenon pucks offer just...
  4. Japanese Platform Bed

    Wife wants a japanese theme for the guest room in our new house so the first order of business was a platform bed. Bedframe design is by no means original, she found a picture somewhere online and i did my best to copy it. Headboard design is original. (if it matches something else my...
  5. Maple and Oak Platform Bed with bed head

    This bed is the culmination of a long multipart blog build that started here This bed is a mostly maple with some oak queensized, platform bed. It has a 50" X 36" drawer, and a long closet in the end. It is a bit high but it was designed to find a marriage of aesthetics and storage space. The...
  6. Platform Bed

    The is the platform bed that I made for the new house. I wanted a simple looking bed frame that does not take up too much space because my wife and I are a bit minimalistic. The last picture shows the frame and the only downside to this is if we both sit on the edge of one side, the bed starts...

    I built this platform bed with headboard in March 2017 Just made a video of how I built it.
  9. Bread box

    This has been in my head for years. Every once in a while I'd think about how to do it, then forget it for a while. It's a bandsaw box. Magnets hold 1 slice onto the loaf, and the heel to the board. The heel must be removed to access the drawer. The starting blank was a 5" x 5" x 10" piece...
  10. A Teenager's 3-Dimensional Dream... Come True!

    This is actually the second "Teenager's Dream" project I did; I'll get the other one posted eventually. Mom sketched up the initial concept for her daughter's room. The challenge was adding more closet space while the actual closet was being closed and stolen to expand mom's closet. The first...

    I built this furniture for one of our spare bedrooms for the kids when they visit. A combination bureau with desk and small bookcase. The platform bed with underneath storage. Materials used are MDF, plywood and poplar.
  12. Simple Cherry Platform Bed

    Yes, that's a tape measure in the foreground…so that's where it went to! Simple bed design but since I was making it without my power tools (while visiting my son) it took me a fair amount of time. Lots of sanding but I think it paid off. Used Watco Danish Oil-three 'coats' and then 2 thin...
  13. Royal Bed Project - Queen-Sized

    This bed project was a "first" for me on several fronts: This is my first Kreg Jig project (nothing like jumping right in) This is my largest design project This is my first drawer project-12 to be exact! These drawer fronts were made on the table saw with a cool jig I whipped up...
  14. Spann's Daybed | Custom

    This is a custom daybed design. The customer was after something simple yet functional. We came up with this flat headboard design and added 2 drawers under it. The drawer were the same design I used on the recently completed Hospice job. Normally I have 3 drawer wide, but the 2 drawer offer...
  15. 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...
  16. Twin Platform Bed and Nightstand

    This was a twin bed and nightstand I made for my daughter when she was ready for the move to a "big-girl bed." I designed the set for my wife based loosely on something she found at Py B*n Kids. The bed is made from solid pine joined with loose tenons (Beadlock system). I think the most...
  17. Queen Bookshelf Platform Bed

    I found plans for this platform bed on the Lowes website. It was an easy project. Used 3/4 inch birtch plywood and modified the height of the bookshelves from 8 inches to 15 inches for a higher overall platform and more practical storage boxes around the base. Total materials cost was $307...
  18. A & C Wedge and Strap Bed

    Here is my arts and crafts style Wedge and Strap bed, named for the backsplash detail. It is designed to look like a wedge driven laterally to tighten a leather strap, but is actually a walnut inlay. The headboard and footboard feature angled stiles and solid frame and panel construction. The...
  19. Long Twin Bamboo Bed Frame

    I was walking around the Big Orange Box and had an idea. Why couldn't I use flooring like home siding to give a simple project a very high end look. I needed a new bed frame so here is what I built. I chose solid bamboo flooring for the project. It was already mortise and tenoned so I didn't...
  20. Bookcase bed with drawers | Custom

    This bed has a bookcase headboard that I've made hundreds of times. It is an old style of mine that normally sits on a waterbed frame. On this variation, I extended the sides to be free standing instead of being able to sit on a frame. The drawer section is an eight drawer unit with 3 sets of...
