This is a captains bed designed by the customer. It was finished in December 2012. It is part of my Children’s Poggy's Kids line. They sent me a real good drawing with a lot of specific details. The headboard is a bookcase style with a beadboard back. The foot board was a raised panel and transitioned into the sides/drawers seamlessly. It had two drawers in either side with full extension rails.

Beautiful is all I can say. I’m impressed with the raised panel in the footboard.
