Completed in 1996. This cherry sleigh bed was a design I picked up from Fine Woodworking. Lands End included it in their catalog that year as well. The slats are steam bent and the volutes are hand carved. I left the carving marks on the volutes rather than sand them out. I used maple slats to support the mattress in lieu of a box spring.
