Solid oak bed. This is the first hardwood project I made since high school shop class. Finally got some good tools. Fun.

Just like riding a bike, get back on and away you go. Nice piece of furniture.

Very clean and to the point, and this is complemented by the use of oak. Nice job on the design of it as well!

Thanks for the kudos. I made it from a plan, so I’m not sure what style to call it.
