We found a similar picture of this bed on the website for Legacy Ornamental Mill and decided we just had to have one as well. This is free standing around our bed frame and can be disassembled into 20 pieces for moving. It is made of Mahogany – Maple and Wenge. As of today it is still not complete as we would like to panel in the top of the frame. We also have hidden christmas tree lights going around the top as well as reading lights in the overhead at the headboard. We are still on the search for more gargoyles to put in the openings around the top.

I actually said “wow” out loud as this popped up on my computer screen. This is beautiful. I’d like to see some pictures of the lights on at night time if you ever get the chance. Beautiful build!

This is very nice, how long did it take to build?

It is something that will stick in the back of my mind as such a beautiful, unique piece. How did you cut the spirals in the vertical legs? Thanks for sharing

Thanks to all for the kind words. My husband has made almost all the furniture in our home and no matter how many times I tell him how good it is these comments mean more to him since you all are his peers.

Will try and get pictures of it at night with the lights on.

It was made in stages the botton half coming first and then the top half. We really can’t remember how many hours went into. I keep telling him to keep track but he goes into the shop and time escapes him. :)

Most of the design elements on the bed were done on a Model 1200 Legacy Mill. It is a pretty amazing hand operated machine.

Great job, I can’t show it to my Wicccan old lady unless I want to make
