Curly Maple bed one of a kind! It is a queen size bed and probably has over 200 hours in it.The guy I made this for originally wanted cherry and curly maple but once we milled the maple and saw how curly it was I told him this has to be all maple.He provided all the wood he had air dried it for many years in a barn !!!!

That’s a great looking bed—and the figure in that maple is just beautiful!
