This is a king sized bed frame that I designed in SketchUp and made with an Oak frame and Sapele panels. There is drawers for storage underneath the mattress and at the head of the bed in place of a drawer I left it open as a cubby. This easily accessible storage has an LED light and outlet with USB charging ports. The Oak was finished by using the Japanese finishing technique of Shou Sugi Ban. This is where the wood is burnt and then a oil finish is applied. The panels are made up of 1/4 inch Sapele in a herringbone pattern on a 1/2 inch plywood backer.
