This is a simple platform bed that was built in November 2012. It is a standard Captain's height drawer pedestal with 12 drawers and a solid platform on top for the mattress support.

Nice bed. Didn’t care for the time lapse vid though. I’d like to see more of your construction details in regular time, maybe with some explanation.

Yea, I did the time lapse for fun. I usually have more building pictures of my projects but for some reason I couldn’t find any that I took. Thanks for the comment.

Nice bed, with ample storage too! Looks like you could store your skiis under there!
Great work.

I enjoyed the time lapse. I wish I could work that fast sometimes.

Great time lapse. I have a (short) series on YouTube called Life in Fast Forward. Haven’t done any wood projects time lapse yet though.

Have your say...
