    My Mission Bed

    Here is a bed I finished, you may remember the original thread, I just never posted any finished results.

    Here some pics of my finished Queen size Mission Bed. This is my first piece of furniture and the largest piece that I have done. Was interesting maneuvering some of those long pieces around the basement shop but it worked out. Just glad most my tools are on wheels.

    This first one is of the footboard

    This second one is the headboard

    This just a pic of the side rail and slats

    This is a shot of one of the corners

    Blow up of the corner

    Thanks for looking

    You can't see it from there, but I'm green.

    Hey Aaron, that looks great, and honestly, I'm not a big "Mission" fan, but that certainly is VERY nice.

    Bed Bolts, nice and solid!

    Already comming up with questions. I was going to ask how you handled the corner posts. Then...........I get sorta smart and go thru your older posts and you have already gone thru that pays to backtrack some times, so thanks for your older posts also
