This is a full size baseball bed that was completed in June 2009. It is a hybrid between my standard baseball bed and the Special Edition. It has the solid wood headboard and footboard as the special edition, but the graphics and painted post as the standard one.

The bats and balls are real. We use Louisville Slugger bats. Normally we build it with all four post with bats, but this customer chose to have just the head. I am trying to make the switch to where all the beds will use only two. Just trying to get more pictures to change in on the web.

Here are some building pictures:

Headboard ready to be installed

What a great bed. Was that an actual score of a real game? or did you just pic a random score? It would be really cool if that was the score of the first game you ever went to or a birthday game.

Very Nice
