I made this cherry bed for my grandson. I carved his name in a celtic font on the headboard. The “R” on the footboard is from the Book of Kells. It is finished with clear Watco Danish Oil. I used bed bolts to attach the side rails to the head and footboards. It is an original design. Oh, and he realy liked it.

Great project, simple, sturdy, great lines, and something he can have until he has kids. Wish my grandpa built me a bed!!! :)

Very nice execution.
