This is a platform bed that was completed in October 2009. It has a 15 ¾”h drawer unit for storage, a panel headboard, and a small frame for the platform. The finish on it is a simple Danish Oil to keep that natural look.

Here are some of the raw video footage (still using backup computer so sorry for the quality).

Chris, this is another nice bed. It has nice clean lines and I like the look of oak with a finish such as danish oil.

Nice job.
