If you have a log house you need a log bed. This was the first bed I ever made. I learned a few things, such as double side rail should be used even though this worked. This bed was made to accept a movable bench at the foot board. Next one I will use Satin finish. One thing for sure it’s not going anyplace!!

LOVE THIS BED! I want to do one of these. Did you use plans or did you just free wheel it?

we had an old queen size bed so i just kind of used the measurments to go by. Head and foot boards are the where you can use your imagination. they’re not that difficult. Just heavy,but sturdy!!

the wood is pine. The foot posts were from a downed tree that I left the bark on the and it created a mold stain and ended up pretty nice after drying. So I used them! I do not use tennen makers. I like the radius shoulder look so I use hole saws and cut around the radius to make my tennen. Even though I would love to have a 2 inch tennen maker just havent been able to pull the trigger for the purchase!!!! I have a number of forestner bits up to a 4 1/2 inch and have been whipped around more times than I can count. By the way, I meant to say something about your headboard on my message to you today. That was the first project I noticed in you gallery!!! Nice!!!
