Its been a while since I posted anything so I thought Id share one of my summer projects with ya!
This is a Brigham inspired bed made from American Walnut and Birdseye Maple. The headboard was obviously the most time consuming part of the project. The curved boards are laminated to a piece of 3/4” plywood, and I carved them with a Kutzal head on a 5” makita grinder, Festool RAS, and a 6” rotex. After the glue set up I mitered the corners of the headboard and reinforced them with dominos to make it look like it was 5” thick. After that I routed out a dado for the cantilevered side tables to fit into.
As for the rest of the bed I was thinking of building a platform bed but decided to make a cross between a traditional and platform bed. So there is a footboard and side boards but they stick up just a bit.
After I sanded the whole thing to 600Grit I added several coats of Maloof oil and a final coat of Festool’s Suffix oil and buffed it.
Thanks for lookin!
