Here is the mission style bed I finished up last December. I started with a plan from Grizzly and modified lumber dimensions some to give it a bit more bulk It was a really fun project and gave me the bug to build real bad.

thanks all.

How many mortise and tenons? I really only count 12, the spindles I kind of cheated. The upper and lower rails were glue ups of 3/4 that I cut half mortises in each side then carefully glued them facing each other. No real tenons there, the spindles are 3/4 square and fit right in the openings.
