This is a bed that I made for my daughter’s wedding present. Walnut and 1/4 sawn red oak. The carving was a replica of her wedding program cover. The plan came from Woodsmith’s platform bed project but I added a footboard. The phrase is I Love You in Norwegian. Thor the dog is showing his best side in the photo.

The plans started out as the Woodsmith platform bed that I modified by adding a footboard to match. I also found that the support system for the foundation support they had designed was not up to the task and I beefed it up by making wooden I beams as the cross members. Kind of like engineered structural members they use in houses now days.
