Here’s a bed I just finished. I borrowed some ideas from SimonSKL and DrRum (thanks guys). The legs are made of four 1” red oak laminated together and the rails are 1” red oak. 3/4” oak plywood was used for the panel. I used Bartley Gel Stain Warm Cherry and finished with wipe on poly.

Looks great Cremar! My mother-in-law was just asking me the other day about making them a headboard. This looks real close to what they want. Thanks for posting!

Thanks Brad! I just had my 5 year old give it the “jump up and down” test and it passed. I guess it’s good to go.
