I recently made this queen sized bed as part of our new bedroom suit. It was made to a plan from Matt Berger and he calls it the William Morris Bed. Of Course he specifies qswo but I had cherry. I used LandArk West oil finish and wax. I made this entire bed, including the rails, from just three boards. It is very very sturdy and my wife and I have enjoyed this rock solid and quiet bed very much since I finished it and moved it into our bedroom. We are not large people at all but we do like a solid bed. All of the components are a bit oversized ( thickness ) as compared to the plan from Mr. Berger, not a lot but enough to ensure that it will be around for a long long time. The boards I had were actually just so thick that I didn’t see the need to plane them down as far as I would have had to to get to the specified thicknesses on most of the parts and just waste all of that wood.
I have also made a nightstand to go with it and have already posted pics of the mirror for the dresser which I am currently building, all from the same tree.
All comments, good and bad, are welcome.
