This is a bed that was finished on 09-08-2007. It has a lot of storage options. It features an extra deep bookcase with pull out storage located under the headboard. This one also has six drawers of storage on one side of the bed. It can accommodate another 6 drawer unit on the other side to.
I also tried a new way of connecting the headboard to the platform. On each side, I drilled for two dowels and a hole all the way through for a draw type bolt. (see photo below)
The platform is made from ¾” MDF with a hardwood edge. The Maple edge is attached with biscuits and pocket screws. The 45 degree corners were doweled with two dowels.
The finish was matched to a customer’s drawer. I use a NGR Red Mahogney dye to darken the maple and then I used a regular wiping stain to give it the color and pop the grain.
