built from cedar roots cedar burl in the face, burl finished with a two part epoxy with the shine buffed off with steal wool and waxed, the rest is finished with tung oil. I remember that big root in the head board was over a half mile pack out, that’s the beauty of projects is the journey.

The trick is a blow up mattress and timing the wind kept blowing my bed spread

That’s a Wizard’s bed. When I got the email saying you posted a new project “driftwood bed”... I just knew this wasn’t going to be an ‘ordinary’ driftwood bed. Very unique style you have. This is kind of like a throne bed.

That looks awesome! Just goes to show you the nice curves and body of the wood, needs very little shaping in it’s natural form. You did a great job of showcasing the beauty of this piece. I would love to have something like that in my house. The finish came out great you do really cool work :-)
