This is personal project for me, This was a Aniversary/Mothers day present for my wife this past May.
We Vacation in the Outer Banks of NC every year, and thier symbol is the Blue Heron. So I made this so she could be in Outer Banks every day… Yea, Sappy I know.
So here go’s,, this puppy is a Monster,, its a full KING size head and foot board with Side rails as well .. It Measures 82” X 82” X 70” at the highest point on the Head Board. The entire construction is 2” X 6” solid Cherry, with solid cherry 4” X 4” post and with Head board and foot board panels made of solid Paduak and various inlays. You may guess the weight on your own, it took 3 of us to get it up and asymbled. Their are way to many woods to mention for the inlays, but I estimate as many as 10 – 15 different woods from as many different countries..
To give you a little perspective,, the Heron in the Head board is life size and so are the fish in the footboard…..
