This is a bedroom set that I completed in June 2005. It was built in oak and featured raised panels on the head and footboard. One thing that I did different was to turn the center panel horizontal. Normally I outsource the panel work, but on this one I built it myself, mainly because of the sideways panel. I didn’t want to confuse my supplier. This change in the panel gave it a little different look to it. The headboard also featured some hand forged ironwork.
The case goods are a combination of a face frame look but built like they are frameless. The sides look like a 2” face frame, but I made it appear to be 2” thick. I sandwiched two ¾” boards and a ½” thick inside frame together to make a frameless 2” thick side panel. I also added rope molding and hand built the base molding in layers.
