This is an oak bed I built for a great couple of friends of mine that recently got married. The Turners wanted a new bed that could look good years from now even if they changed their decor. I decided to keep things simple. No contrasting woods or funny lines. I’m not really sure if this qualifies as an arts and crafts or shaker style. I admit that I stole elemts from both. I used a set of metal hook-in rail fasteners that mortise into both the rail and headboard/footboad. They hold really strong and are much easier to use than traditional bedbolts. I finished the bed with Cabot’s Gunstock stain and many coats of a satin wipe-on poly. The pics aren’t great…bad lighting.
