Pine king size bed

Couple of weeks ago I purchased 600 bf of eastern white pine. This is the first of many projects from this stock. Minwax early American stain, satin varathane finish.

Love it. I need to get to work on a bed frame, the one me and the wife have is pitiful to say the least.

Thanks, our original set was for a queen bed and when we upgraded my wife put the order in. Now for the rest of the furniture.

Nice job. Got any pics of the frame and joinery? That's a big bed.

When it's rustic......it's rustic

Sorry I'm bad for not taking pictures during the build. The posts are mitered with splines for strength and the remainder of the work is cope and bead with raised panels. For the trim I used the lee valley #3 moulding bit. Lots of router work. To join the headboard to the foot board I built two 6" bed rails that run along the box spring and attach with bed rail fasteners, http://www.leevalley.com/en/hardware...842,41269&ap=1
Fairly simple and straight forward build but was lots of fun.
