Am I seriously the only commentor on such a sweet headboard and footboard? It appears I am. Nice work and I bet the ebony on the pine looks even better in person, Nick.

That’s a great looking bed alright, I love the simplicity of the design and the contrasting highlights, great work!

Very sharp design
I love doing more with less (pine)
Is this from a plan?

Very nice job.

When I think about wood beds, I always wonder how the side rails are attached to the head board and foot board. Getting that connection right is essential for a solid feeling bed and, of course, you have to be able to take it apart without too much trouble. What kind of connection did you use?
