A great mixture of wood. Is the quilt solid, or veneer? Congratulations on a fine project.

Very nice… and unique among the entries.
Though sleeping under a matching quilt may not be so comfortable ;)

Beautiful Daniel and great craftsmanship. The way you approached the tops is really distinctive. Thanks so much for sharing with us.
