This is a bed i built for a friend. she wanted a japanese platform style bed. She gave me a plethora of types she wanted. i took the basic style and spliced them all together (they were all very similar).
I started a skeleton of the frame and totally scraped it. i wasnt at all satisfied with it. i sat down and redrew my plans and walla! what you see in the pics is the skeleton that came to be the frame and bed.
She wanted two free-floating night stands as well. so i came up with a small box design and in the final product picture you can see her night stands hanging from the wall.
She wanted it finished with a pearl white paint. not my choice of color or finish, but hey its not my bed.
I used pine plywood and solid poplar for various parts and rockler hardware for the rails.
