This is a project my wife and I had discussed for a couple of years, then decided to get it started after I finished a credenza for our family room. Originally, we were going to build a headboard and use some striking veneers we had collected, but changed our minds when she inherited an antique headboard. Shifting gears from what I thought was going to be mahogany to using red oak to match the headboard was OK – whatever keeps the boss happy!
The bed is modeled after the king-sized platform bed I made for our master bedroom a few years ago. There is plenty of under-bed storage with two drawers on each side as well as open areas at the headboard. Each drawer is about 25” side to side by 23.25” front to back by 9.5” deep. Interior casework is 1/2” sandeply. All exterior wood is red oak.
Thanks for looking!
Comments are, of course, welcome!
