Photography Prop Bed

The wife was bugging me to make a tiny bed for a prop for her photography. So I finally built it and got it painted.

It measures about 25 inches long by 13 inches wide. I used the Kreg Jig for the rails and it can support my 170lbs standing on it. They are much stronger than I thought. Nothing much but with 2 little kids it's hard to find time out in the shop.

My wife is a photographer too, her props are outdoor items though, but if she sees this I can see myself asking for more details.

Are the panels in the head and foot boards bead board panels or did you mill them as individual boards?
