We have some guests coming to stay in March, and so the wife wanted a double bed to replace the davenport we previously used as the guest “bed”. Since there was already a Pine desk and shelves in the room a pine bed was of course the natural choice.
The head board is made with tongue and grove pine flooring, which floats between the upper and lower rails, too allow for expansion. The post are book-matched, laminated, since I could not find the right size post in pine. The bed rails are attached with your standard bed hardware to allow it to come apart into four pieces. The bed rails are also recessed in routed groves to hide the hardware.
As for finishes we can’t decided on what to do so we have left it unfinished for now. It should not get a lot of where as a guest bed so I figure we can do it at any time. Personally I am liking the natural look, but mostly because I hate staining soft woods.
