Two years ago (but who's counting) I started a thread on a queen platform bed and night stand for our guest room. Well, after taking a few side trips on other projects and honey-dos around home, I finally got through the process of finishing and assembling the bed in the house.
Here's the result of our labors.
We used red oak for all of the visible parts of the bed and nightstand. The foot board (as well as drawer fronts) are two boards edge-glued together. What you see here is one continuous piece in which I ran dadoes to give it the appearance of a drawer and two panels.
Two drawers on each side of the bed provide a lot of storage. Internal measurements of the drawers are 25" side-to-side, 23.25" front-to-back and 9" deep.
Access to the space near the head of the bed is via segments of the platform that lift out after sliding the mattress down a bit.
The choice of red oak was based on this headboard LOML inherited from her grandmother. She had always liked the headboard and, although we had talked about making a new one using veneers, etc., decided this is what she wanted us to use.
The nightstand top is made with four sections cut from a piece of 3/4" oak veneer plywood and glued into the pattern you see, then wrapped with solid oak.
As always, comments and critique are welcome!
