I built this bed as sort of a wedding present for my new wife. The wood is walnut and american chestnut. My grandfather and great uncle cut the walnut off of the family farm sometime in the 1980’s. I salvaged the chestnut from their father’s house (my great-grandfather) in clay county, WV earlier this year. The house was full of 4” T&G bead board which had been covered up with wall paper and drywall. The bed is solid as a rock. The bead board was tongued into the walnut stiles which are mortised into the legs. Turned out to be pretty simple once I got rolling.
