These 2 beds are made from Beetle Kill lodgepole and ponderosa pine from Colorado. The posts and rails are lodgepole, while the T&G headboards and footboards are mixed ponderosa and lodgepole. One footboard top cap has a bullet stuck in it, I found while milling it. I thought it looked neat so I centered it along the piece and cut away 1/2 to show it. The top T&G board on the Full bed has many beetle holes which I thought was unique. The queen is for a customer. The full bed gained me many mother-in-law points, as it is a gift for her. These use Rockler brackets. Finish is Watco danish oil. Headboards stand 50” tall and footboard is 24”. They both have 7” under the rails for storage boxes. The posts are 4×4. The T&G are loosely captured in a frame with a 3/4” dado.
