I am sorry for my bad English. I am a fan of Greene and Greene style. Woodworking is my hobby. This project is made of sapele and purpleheart with ebony plugs and splines. I took liberties make use of Harvey Ellis inlays in this project. I used brass inlays.

Wow! Gorgeous bed. Would love to see more pics of your workshop – did you build the bench as well?

-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.

Thank you. This small table is build two years ago. I am posted my workshop in my profile. Welcome to my small workshop. About inlays. At the begining I want to make Harvey Ellis inlays with pewter and copper. But I am not found techniqes of the work with pewter and I took a decision use the brass. Then I made to order on the Laser cut of brass. The routing wood workpieces made to order on the CNC Router. The inlays patterns I took in this book
Then I glued brass inlays strips into workpieces with epoxy.

Excellent looking Greene & Greene bed! It certainly will be a beautiful addition for your bedroom.

By the way, there is a bed project like this in this month’s Fine Woodworking or Popular Woodworking magazines (not sure which), and I may have to build one, too!

Great looking bed, Edward. What finish did you use? I’m working on a bed out of sapele too.

It is simply.The fist- primed bed ( mix pollyurethan liacquer and white spirit), the second- stained ” Varathane Gel Stain Red Mahagony. Then – two layers polyurethan laquer . To my regret I have not comressor and stained room, so I use brushes.
