I’m finally posting the bed made for my daughter. It’s mostly black walnut with some rock maple and jatoba. The bed is floating. If you look at the video you’ll see the shadow cast by the bed that appears to be about 5 inches off the ground. It is ringed by LED lighting that has a remote control to strobe, flash, or blend light colors. The bed features a multi wood headboard with oriental accent on the top and a carving of an iris in walnut in the center panel. The platform ‘wings’ feature widened a tray routed depression near the head of the bed. You can see the entire blog of the build here.
This was a complex build for me and my first carving experience. All in all it came out pretty nicely I think.
