Maple Captains bed for a local customer. 4 large drawers on the bottom and a bookcase head board in the back.
Lots of good wood working challenges. Bed was installed in a basement and all the parts needed to be able to fit in a tight staircase.
Dovetailed drawers with non traditional clover dovetails.
Stained the white maple with a dye and then a gel stain.
Notice the bedside reading table in the last picture.
If you are going to build something similar, send me an email and I will tell you more about the drawer system, quite simple, and no need to reinvent the wheel.
