This is an oak captain’s bed that was completed on October 25, 2008. It features 6 drawers on one side and I just left the other side open. Most of the time these are placed in smaller kids rooms and usually the bed is placed against the wall making the other side useless. The footboard has a door has a door to access the space under the bed.

The finish that the customer selected was pickled oak from Minwax followed by two coats for pre-catalyzed lacquer.

Here are some building pictures of this project from my Current Projects page.

Great work. What was the finished weight on this monster of a project?

It really wasn’t too bad. On the bed the drawers were the heavest by far and I have modified them so much over the years to elimiate waste that even they are fairly light.
