Big bed, small finish room

My finishing room is an old Trailer house living room. 10’x30’. Normally that’s fine for most projects. Not so much a king size bed. 86” long, 84” wide and 61” tall. In the past I have made a storage chamber in the center of the bed. This is the first time I have lined it with plywood.

Made of Beetle Kill Pine with satin lacquer finish.

Thank you for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Beautiful job Monte. I look forward to your projects.

My wife wants a BKP Morris chair glider. If I ever get over my pre Thanksgiving surgery and this head cold I might get started.
