This is a pine 4 poster was completed in May 2009. It is a version of my Spanish Rose bed that I use to build a lot. This one had the iron replaced with a slat style. I also added the sliding/hidden drawer at the foot.

This finish is just a clear coat using pre-catalyzed lacquer.

Nice style bed. Great looking job! ...and of course I think your under bed storage is outstanding as always.

Very nice, Chris. I like the design a lot. That is very good use of space, with the drawers in the foot board. Now you’ve got my mind going. Thanks for the post.

Great looking bed frame. I like the storage drawer. It beats sliding boxes under the bed (-;

I’m curious about something else. I noticed you did not miter the corners on the posts which would have eliminated the visible joints and made it look like a solid piece. Was there a reason for that?

LesB, No reason for that. That would have been a better way of doing it, but ever since I started maket this style (or the one similar to it) I’ve just used butt joints so save on labor cost.
