This is a custom bed that was built for a customer. It is in pine with a rustic finish. It was a style that I built previously, but the customer wanted to add a gun drawer. I raised the height a little and made a cutout for a drawer to slide in. Built a drawer from ½” birch and attached some casters to the bottom. Inside the drawer I built a row of supports to hold the guns in an upright position.
I’ve built several beds that used similar iron and at first had them hand forged, but the prices got too high. Now I buy my iron form King Architectural Metals. I just now have to build around their sizes.
The rustic finish was a light color stain and then a dark pigmented wax.
