Very nice. My wife has been looking for the right sleigh bed for a few years now. I’ll have to show this to her.

That bed is very nicely done. It looks great and you did a good job on it.

Beautiful piece. You usually see sleigh beds in dark woods but the light and airiness of this one is really wonderful and appealing. Terrific.

very nice!! You used two of my favorite woods. It looks like you did a fine job with the finish as well. You don’t see to much made from Hickory any more.
