Just finished a platform bed for my daughter. It is spalted beech I milled several years ago. Finished with lacquer.

That looks great. Really beautiful, Norm. I’m curious if all four sides touch the ground, or if the sides float.

Matt originally I planned for all sides to touch the ground, but before I finished I planed 3/16” off the bottom of the sides. I was worried uneven floors might cause the bed to come apart.

Great looking bed frame—I love the live-edge headboard!
