Queen Farmhouse Bed (Rough-cut lumber)

Submitted by jacktipper on Thu, 11/29/2012 - 05:25

We constructed our farmhouse bed from rough-cut lumber (mostly pine with a few eastern red cedar panels). However, the top rails of the headboard and footboard were reclaimed from an old railraod depot and maintain their faded red color. I will admit, using rough-cut lumber practically tripled our efforts because nothing was square or even, but all in all, I think it was worth it!
