I really enjoy mission style furniture. You did a good job with this bed. The curved rails and carvings add nice details to the piece. Did you cut individual mortises in the headboard and footboards?
How did you finish the piece?
Nice job and thanks for the post.

Beautiful job on the Mission bed! How is your inner frame built or are you using a metal frame and the Mission frame sits around it?

I used plans from “The Complete Bedroom” which I altered to soften the look. It was carved with the CMT router carver. The bed sits on the floor right now to allow our old dog to jump up on it but cleats can be added to elevate the box springs if needed. The plans included a jig which creates wide dados in the top and bottom rails to accept the slats- the two rails are then glued up to create the mortises. This makes for a very massive bed; it takes two to carry even the foot board. I finifhed it with 3 coats of gel stain and two coats of poly.
We are in the process of moving to Santa Fe, NM so I am now packing up the shop. The house I just made an offer on has a 1500 sq. ft. shop (yeah baby!). I will post pics if I get it. Wish me luck!
