Back in 2010 I built this bed using Matt Berger’s plans found here: http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/56992/build-a-mission-style-bed
This was back before I had my shop setup the way I wanted and had to make do with a lot of substandard tools and work surfaces. Having my Jet Hollow Chisel Mortiser was a huge help for this project, as it is almost completely mortise and tenon construction. I chose Curly Maple as my wood because I like the look of it. It was finished with some Blonde Shellac sprayed on in the driveway. I have since installed the end caps on the posts that make it look like through-tenons. My wife and I have been sleeping on this bed for the last 3.5 years and we still love it. I highly recommend this build for anyone who likes the style and wants a very sturdy bed.
