This is a custom style of the baseball beds that I build. The customer chose to use ash wood to match the bats and then do a custom color scheme. What I like about painting over ash is that the grain comes through. Since ask is an open grain like oak, it give it a texture and a real nice effect.

I use ash on these beds but normally when I do that I CNC all the headboard information into the panel. This one, however is the vinyl letters like our standard version.

The customer did add a trundle to this bed. The trundle is designed to look like drawers when closed.

that’s a pretty cool design.
I like the trundle bed idea as well.

OK, that is COOL AS HECK!!!! I’m sure any kid wouldn’t mind bedtime with that… that is really original. Very good job. I really like the “special edition” bed… looks like they have room for a sleepover, but you kept the storage. Very cool….
