Oak bedroom #2

This is a bedroom set I made a while back for my oldest daughter and her husband. They use an “air number” bed that’s an odd size between queen and king. Obviously you can’t shop in the normal furniture stores for this bed, and they certainly didn’t like the choices at the store where they bought the air bed.

Similar chest to the one I posted earlier for my son’s bedroom (70” x 36”, 7 drawers), except they did not want pulls on the drawers. I routed a cove on each drawer front for pulls. Frame and raised panel construction on the chest, nightstands and bed. All solid red oak except for the 1/2” Baltic birch drawer boxes which are joined with box joints. Headboard posts are 74” tall. The 2 night stands are 36×36 x 24. Their bedroom is 22’ x 22’ so we upscaled everything.

Finish is Minwax red oak stain with 4 coats of HVLP spray on poly.

That came out really nice! I’m sure they are happy. I also like my drawers without pulls. Did you do any pore filling on the oak? I am starting a project with red oak and it will be my first time working with it

Joe, I did not fill the pores on the oak. Kind of a personal preference for me but I like the look with a satin poly finish and then paste wax and no grain filler. Thanks for the comments!
