Farmhouse style bed with some modern touches.

Finish is shellac & wax. Joinery is loose tenon. Panels have overlapping rabbets with panels attached by a single slim tenon to allow movement.

This is my biggest project to date.

This is a wonderful bed and you’ve done a fine job on it.

Wow – super excited about all the positive feedback. Thanks so much!

What you can’t see in the picture is that my wife took the picture with her rear in the closet. We have a california king bed in a queen-sized room, haha! Dimensions are hard sometimes!

This project took about 3 months, start to finish. I tend to get 16-20 hours a week of shop time.
