Well about six months ago I mentioned this project with the Armore posting. That was about the time I started the layout. Foot board was the first part of project. 2” Cherry stock for the post, 3/4” for the panels, the Cherry I use has a lot curly/flame pattern to it. Not real visible in the pictures. All the lighter wood is Curly maple, panel frames, rails, drawer fronts and trims. All the drawers are solid Cherry boxes with Curly Maple fronts. Blind Dovetail jointry. I also made night stands and a large chess dresser, I will post in a few days as soon as I complete the drawers in those units, they are in finale assembly in the shop. The finish is Minwax Cherry Stain on both Cherry and curly Maple, with about 6 coats Stain Clear laquer. This project was to be done for Christmas but I think it was worth the wait. Oh! the bed is a California King 72” x 84”.
