Arts & crafts/Mission style bed with a bit of contemporary elements mixed in. I tried to keep it mostly rift/quatersawn but i couldn’t afford to buy quatersawn for such a large project right now. So i had pick the best pieces i could get out of the flatsawn stack. I was able to resaw a lot of it to get rift/quater for the slats & i tried to keep the flatsawn pieces to the lesser seen parts. The knock down joinery is dry double M&T with a hidden bed bolt. The inlay is canary wood. I used transfast light brown mahogany dilluted 1:4 from fullstrength. Then i used general finishes brown mahogany gel stain. Finished with 3 coats of wipe on poly & topcoat of wax. The dimensions are for a queen size mattress(80”x60”). If anyone is interested in the sketchup doc just PM me.
