Solid Hickory Farmhouse Queen

Submitted by nab454 on Thu, 09/13/2012 - 18:23

The bed was a wedding present to my wife. I got rough cut, kiln dried hickory at a local sawmill, planed, and joined it to get the finished lumber. The lumber was sanded with three grtis with a random orbital sander and wet sanded once. The posts are laminated hickory slats that I inleted for the rail hook hardware. The head and footboard slates are tongue and groove, fitted into troughs on the top and bottom. The tops of the posts were milled out to allow the tongue and groove cap to fit flush. Three coats of Golden Oak, and then two coated of polyurethane. Looks great, but really heavy.
