I made this bed for a customer who wanted a platform bed for his daughter. I found a design on Jon Peter’s website (jonpeters.com). I tweaked the design for a queen sized bed and included some joinery like blind dados and rabbits. The bed is made out of birch ply with walnut trim. The parts were all pre-finished by spraying with Sherwin Williams Kem Aqua Plus, a clear satin topcoat. The bed is made to disassemble and reassemble. It is very heavy when assembled.
