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.
