Solid birch headboard and footboard for a three-quarter bed. Frame and panel construction using 1 1/2” thick frame pieces. Raised panel is 3/4” thick. Grain uniformity achieved by using wide boards so that no edge gluing of boards was necessary except for the panels. Rails are joined to the legs using mortise and tenon joinery. The flower appliqués are store bought. 50” wide x 32”/40” high (footboard/headboard). Custom stained with water based stain (SamaN brand) to match an existing dresser, followed by a sealcoat of shellac followed by a couple coats of sprayed waterborne lacquer.
