This is a bed I completed for a client. He built the headboard about 20 years ago when he was working in a woodshop. The headboard has been resting behind his bed ever since but he never finished building the rest of the bed. So he commissioned me to build the footboard and rails to complete the bed.
He still had the gorgeous matching Claro Walnut and curly Birch from when he originally built the headboard. So the lumber for the footboard is from the same tree as the headboard even though it was built two decades later.
It was an interesting project since I had to recreate details included in the original piece.
