Hey there, first time posting of a project. This project is basically a copy (an homage?) if you will to silverhalo’s “Asian Inspired Platform Bed”. except done in black walnut and without the fancy carving. My wife and I both loved the design and it was my first major project on my own after taking a couple of classes. I mucked about with it in Sketchup for quite a bit getting things right and designed it to take a California King mattress. All the black walnut is 8/4 (planed to 7/4) with one coat of Seal-A-Cell and four coats of Arm-R-Seal and a final rub out with paste wax and 0000 steel wool. It’s nowhere near ‘perfect’ (all those n00b warts hiding in there) but I like it. Thanks to silverhalo for the inspiring design. I’ve seen several other people out there wanting to copy your design for themselves.
