Cherry & Maple Sleigh Bed with a Danish Oil

I used plans from Wood Magazine issue #135 and modified the size for a king bed. I also modified the feet on the bed from the plans to give it a different, and what i think is a beefier look.

I am fairly new to woodworking, and found this project to be my most difficult yet. This is due to having to cut curved legs and coves in the top rails.

This project is nice because it gives the look of the sleigh bed without any veneering or bending wood.
