I really like your straightening jig and panel clamps. What size threaded rod did you use. I like the quartered sawed head board. Using a french cleat is a good idea.

Those nuts would be the "proper" size so that they actually thread onto the rods. Hope this helps. bill

I just like to build with wood and a means to save money by doing it myself.
I've been building things out of wood for 40 years and I'm still just an amateur.

You mean, like using the end of your bed as a table extension for your table saw?



Seriously, it looks REALLY GOOD!!!

Looks great and gives me inspiration for when I start building my mission style furniture. I can't imagine being at the point that I have nice QS White Oak just sitting in the shop, some day. Headboard is down the road though. I got one that is decent mission style, although it is pine, I believe and painted brown. I got it used for a good price. I think my A&C style stuff will start in the living room. I need a new coffee table. Again great job.
