Traditional Bed with Pickled Wood Finish

A smaller bed (full size) was needed to fit the guest room of this client, so that there would be room to move around the bed and room. Bob and his client decided to create 2 shorter bed posts (at the end of the bed) to limit run-ins with the frame and create more of a feeling of space in the room.

Below are some details of how Bob constructs bed corner posts (using bolts) and the wooden slat support structure across the frame for the box spring and mattress.

Cherry Wood Bed with Arched Headboard

I’ve created a custom, queen-sized, cherry wood bed frame with an arched headboard for a good client of mine. (There are also two bedside tables that I made that you can partially see.) Unfortunately they have had to move several times in the last 5 years, but fortunately the design of this bed (and matching tables) has worked well in all their bedrooms!
