Named the Winkler Bed after its designer it has a curved headboard with 1/4” maple panels captured in the walnut by dadoes in the top,sides,bottom and divider. The headboard parts were finshed before the glue up and it was a real challenge getting the maple panels into the top dadoe. They naturally wanted to flex out the wrong way. So i would get one end in and by the time i worked my way over to the other side the other end would pop out. The back also has finished panels so you could put the bed in the middle of a room and it would look mint from all directions. The sides, end and headboard are fixed with lockinghardware and the matress is supported by spring loaded slats.

That is a neat looking bed. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the spring loaded slats before – does the mattress rest on top of the slats, with no box spring?

Yes the slats support the mattress. They work well with the low profile type beds that are popular with modern design. No box spring required!

Very nice work indeed. Don’t go sleeping in Jono, plenty of projects to complete.

Love the design and a great looking bed from all directions.
What is the spring loaded slats made from? Or how do you spring load them?

Wonderful design and execution, Jono. Favorited for future reference. I love simple platform beads. The slats are ingeniousl
