This is a beautiful project packed full of function. It is a headboard, dresser, two bedside tables with book shelves and drawers, reading lights and storage cubbies behind the pillow area.
The bed is located in the center of the room. When you enter the room at the top of the stairs through french doors you see the dresser, open screen and a vista at the top of the mountain. The bed is on the other side of the dresser snugged up to the unit. The four cubby holes are behind the pillow area. Each cubbie has holes for wiring and there is a power strip located in the center of the dresser side. The spaces between the cubbies are all wire chases.
The Headboard has recessed lights that I built so that the clients can read in bed. Each light has a potentiometer (dimmer switch) in each end cubby.
The front dresser has 6 drawers, one in the top center is a jewelry drawer. I used undermount soft push guides.
Around the back I have a pull out on each side of the bed. Each pull out has a books case and bin and a recessed drawer inside of the main unit.
I used American Cherry Armorcore, walnut and tigerwood. I flared the bottom of the legs as you can see in the detail shot. The main top is curved in the front each end and in front of the pullouts. All grain waterfalls throughout.
Thanks for stopping by! I will try to get these photos processed soon to remove the dollies . . .
