This is a Queen Bed I made for our guest room. It is made from Red Oak. Finished with 2 coats of oil based poly. All Tongue and grove construction. The curve formed rails are exact inverses of each other. The challenge of mating the stiles to the curves required hand fitting each individually. Over all it was a very enjoyable project.

Looks great, like the reverse angle on the foot board as well. M & T ’s look tight! Well done.

Very nice design and build. Timeless.
