That's a beautiful looking bed Bryan. When attaching a fairly large chunk of wood to the posts like you did in the foot-board, how do you accommodate wood movement?
Looking great so far, Bryan!

Live every day like it's your last, but don't forget to stop and smell the roses.
Wow! Looks great so far, Bryan. It's always a pleasure seeing your work.

I now have most of the parts sprayed, except I have to redo the footboard I laid it on the router table to dry with a scrap board as a spacer, which glued itself into the lacquer on the face side of the footboard . I sanded it back, stained, and waiting for some spare time to heat up the shop and spray. Headboard turned out nice!
you sure get your moneys worth out of that duplicator and the lathe its hooked to if i were to go to the spinny side i would like to have a duplicate of your setup..

Interesting, I hadn't thought of doing bed bolts in both directions. Certainly looks like a solid idea.
Are you putting medallions or plugs over the bolt holes?
