Many of you followed my blog “This Old Crack House” and know for the most part it is furnished with Mission and Arts and Crafts Style furniture.
Although these styles are my personal favorites , I have ,and do build several other furniture styles.
I thought I would share a few of the pieces I have built and have in various rooms in “This Old Crack House”.
This piece is in one of the spare guest bedrooms.
The head and foot board posts are solid oak and are 4×4 with walnut inlays.
This walnut and oak bed was designed and built by me using only mortise and tenon joints. I also used wood plugs and other “old craft” methods to construct the bed. The wood dowels are drilled threw the mortises and sanded flat.
This piece is a third generation piece. In other words it is the third one I built improving the design along the way each time.
I also have built matching nightstands and armoire to go with the bed.
The finish is natural.
The piece is a large bold piece but breaks down easily in four pieces so it can be moved with little or no problem.
