This is a Daybed that I’ve built a few times. This one I put an iron scroll pattern in the center of the headboard. I have put anything from a cross to a Bunking Bronco.

It is built from Pine wood the pine on the center panels are a tongue and groove product that is about 5/16” thick. I finished this in April 2015.

It looks very ’’royal’’. Outstanding project.

The finished look is incredible, hard to believe it is pine. May I ask what product you used to get such a lovely, even finish? It doesn’t appear to have any blotching in the photos. Great design and excellent execution.

I can’t remember the exact finish. That was a color match we did for the custom. I usually orbital sand to 120 grit and the spray my Minwax oil base stain on with a cheap gravity feed gun. Wipe the finish off fairly quickly. My top coat is pre-cut lacquer.
