This is a platform bed made form both Maple and Pecan. The customer asked for some character in the wood so I carefully selected the Pecan pieces. The Maple also has some figure in it.

The headboard is maple with a Pecan edge and the drawers are maple with Pecan drawer fronts.

The drawer boxes have cedar bottoms. We also added a 60” pull out drawer at the foot of the bed.

It was finished in January 2014.

Nice project! I LOVE the multiple storage drawers as one can never have too much storage, especially for linens, pillows, blankets and all those miscellaneous things one accumulates. You could make this design out of many different woods and it would be a winner each time.

Chris, great job on the bed. Looks really cool.

I have a question though, how easy is it to disassemble a bed built like this?
