Having put up with a 1.4m wide bed for the last four years, and personally only being able to use a third of that!! ;) I decided it was time to build a bigger one. Unfortunately being restricted by the size of the bedrooms, and position of windows, the largest I could build was 1.8m wide by 1.9m long (I could have gone longer, but not wider!), we ended up choosing a matt oak varnish.

The full build is on my Blog it took two and a half weeks, from start to finish, usually only working half days!

Looks like a nice piece! I know you wanted it to be made from Brazilian hardwood. Maybe you can find someone with a mill?

Thanks Tom, if I had the space, I would buy the mahogany and leave it to dry for a few months, but I haven’t, so will use my mahogany for small pieces, and anything bigger will be pine.
I won’t find bigger in dry hardwood I am told, not here, because they harvest the trees too young, and therefore rely on laminating smaller boards, any large timber is imported.

That’s sad.

But I’m guessing you and your wife are appreciating the bed already! LOL!
