Very nice… If I ever have to build another one, I hope it looks that good. Fine work Joe

Great bed frame Joe! Now all the lady of the house will want is the matching dresser, two matching nightstands, a matching tall chest, and matching mirror…...... ;-)

But honestly, very good job. I would love to have such a piece that I had built!

Looks great Joe! Beats the pants off of the expensive “nice” headboard I bought with our last bed. Like others have said, when I re-build mine down the road I hope it turns out this nice.

thanks a lot.
I wish it would show the true way the finish turned out, I mean, really nice, like touching glass, I hand rubbed the hell out of that piece, and it payed off, the feel is like a semi-gloss/satin in between…just a perfect mix.
I used Danish oil, then Arm-R-Seal, then Goddards
