Going back to our roots, I made this Waterbed. We started out 35 years ago building waterbeds as our primary business. This one was built in November 2013. The customer designed it and wanted to do something using contrasting cherry and maple.

The maple is used as trim on the frame and background on the headboard.

We adding a 6 drawer pedestal for extra storage under the bed. We upgraded to the full extension ball barring rails.

Very fun project and nice to do a more contemporary version of the Waterbed.

I second David:

That is an awesome bed.


People still have waterbeds?!?

Of course there are still waterbeds.

Where did you think the water sleeps?

Nice job, Chris.

Great waterbed frame!

I may be the last but I love my waterbed! It is the only bed I have ever slept in that makes my back feel better.
