Walnut Platform Bed
Recently I completed the construction of a Walnut platform bed. After searching and searching and being unhappy with the availablity of a reasonably priced bed that was constructed with quality hardwoods. I decided to design and build one for myself, the process was drawn out over several months and worked on between various other jobs. The design of the bed went through many variations and ultimately changed during the actual construction of the bed. I think of design as a fluid process and often the best design decisions occur mid construction.
This was the design of the bed when construction commenced.
