My latest design on the T&G bed. I changed the top and bottom rails to a bigger stronger design using 1.75×3.5” with a dado to hold the panels. They are mortised to the posts on the footboard, and pocket screwed on the headboard. The posts are 4×4 and side rails 2×6”. I will be giving this one away at The Colorado Experience show next weekend. The panels in the headboard have many beetle holes and tunnels, making for a unique piece. Finish is Watco danish oil.
I finally discovered using an air mattress for photos and shows is much better than hauling my heavy memory foam up and down the stairs.
