I named this bed Patience, mainly because it tested mine to the MAX. My plan on this was to not only make a new bed but make it so that it was all I needed in the bedroom. Both sides are identical and I am waiting on the misses to get the baskets for the shelves, she told me she didnt want any drawers in it.
After many many days working away on this I finally got it done and in the room today. I made it all out of oak as I was just going to stain it black anyway not poiint in getting something way more expensive for that. I tried hard to get the “dojo” feel in this piece.
Please let me know what you think.

It’s very nice, but I can’t imagine crawling over that ledge to get in and out of the bed, and it looks like a hard bed to make too (as far as the sheets, I mean…but tough craftsmanship as well!)

Great looking bed!
On the practical side I tend to agree with MHarper90.
would love to hear more about your design considerations. How you get on/of the bed and what method do you use to make the bed.

I thought hard about that. On the end it there is a step on either side. Getting in and out of the bed is actually quite simple. But even without it I always have to sit in my chair to take off shoes and whatever else in order to get ready to lay down…now I just sit there on the side and roll in.

Oh missed the making part. There is an area all the way around the mattress for the purpose of making the bed. Makes just as easy as my traditional bed.

Looks great, like the Asian inspired design. Love the open shelves for extra storage. Great job!
