I made the farmhouse bed and nightstand using 300 year old pine that was on a local home for 150 years. The bed rails I used 6/4 white oak and recycled pallet boards for the vertical boards. The bed posts I used two 2x4's laminated together and I wrapped them in the pine. The nightstand I used the same pine and pallet boards for the case. I then used 4/4 whit oak for the table tops.
