Finally finished my bed. The wood is reclaimed, wormy hickory (we believe). It was the floor of the barn in which I began woodworking in Cuba, NY. It was a lot of work tearing up the boards, cleaning them and removing all the nails, planing the boards and then designing the bed itself with my father. Then I spent a lot of time dragging my feet but finally assembled it and I am very proud. I love it, and using lumber from the barn and having my father help me design it makes it very special to me.
It is for sale though. $88,999. Email me if interested.
I used bed hangers to make it easy to disassemble and assemble it. I used Danish oil, and danish oil with a dark pigment, then finished it with wipe on poly. The headboard and foot board were assembled with pocked screws.
