Captains bed that I built to replicate a bed in a local furniture store. Made from construction grade doug fir lumber to give a rustic look and feel. It’s made with M&T joinery. The drawers are dovetailed and made with plywood boxes. It’s extremely heavy and will last a very long with kid’s abuse.

Finish is stained with a pecan stain. Several coats of sprayed gloss poly on top.
