This is the first of two beds I’m making for my kids. This one is a full size for my son (5).
The bed is solid walnut and has somewhere around 40 mortise and tenon joints.
The design is part chinese influence, part art deco, and all Thomas Moser.
I converted a king size picture of one of his New Century China Beds down to a kids size.
Posts are 12/4, rails are 8/4, and then graduating sizes down from that.
This was a real challenge, but incredibly satisfying. I think the next one is going to be just as tough.
My son show in the last picture enjoying his first night in the bed that should last well into his grand children.
