This is my latest done from an American Woodworker article in 2005. Did it in Walnut instead of suggested oak just because wanted to do a Walnut project. Oil and varnish finish with the last few coats including wood filler to smooth out the normal uneven walnut. Hardware from 1920-1940 era. Took me the best part of a year (bunch of small projects in between). But darned if it didn’t work out! It was a surprise to me. And now my wife is saying it certainly would be nice to have a bed that matched it. So beginning to think about that now.
