This is a version of the boat bed I build a lot. I normally put a trundle under the bed, but on this one the customer wanted drawers. The customer also added portholes to the bed.

If you notice on the picture I also built a matching chest of drawers. Normally I build the case goods with a painted base and stained drawer fronts and top. This one the the customer wanted all stained.

This bed was built and completed in April 2011

Now that is a cool project, well done I think the port holes really set it off as well.

Awesome work! I like it a lot. Where’d you get the porthole hardware?
