This is a bedroom set that I made for my younger daughter and her husband for their wedding gift. Unfortunately I didn’t finish it before their wedding, but it was completed before they moved into their new house a few months later. All solid red oak except for the drawer boxes, which are box jointed 1/2” Baltic birch plywood. There are 12 drawers under the bed, 4 in each night stand and the chest has 7. They should have plenty of storage. The radius on the headboard, footboard and crest rails were created using an MDF template I made with a 12’ 4” trammel board. After shaping the crest rails were cut with progressively sized roundover bits to end up with an almost circular shape. All frame and raised panel construction. The drawers operate beautifully on shop-made wood slides. When making the drawer boxes I think I was cutting box joints for 8 hours straight.
