This is a bed that was designed by a customer. They basically told me they wanted drawers, a panel headboard with rosettes on the corners in black. I suggested using the oak wood for texture and using a red undercoated instead of black for the base. This allow me to rub through the finish and expose the red. Very nice looking effect. For more see Rosette Platform Bed.

It has a little different drawer pedestal then I normally make. It has four smaller drawers toward the head on each side and then a larger drawer at the foot.

This bed was completed on June 2011.
