This bed goes with the night stands I posted earlier that I made for my stepdaughter. She found a picture of a bed she liked and this is what we came up with. It is syp finished with java gel stain. She wanted it dark. The posts have pockets that the rails sit in with studs that are bolted on thru the inside of the rails. The end rail is bolted thru the foot posts.
This was a fun project but I definitely need a bigger space for projects this size. Sorry for the picture quality.

Gorgeous bed. The wife has hinted at me making a new bedframe for her and this is definitely the level I would like to deliver. I’m sure that she will love it.
