Last year we had the pleasure of producing two beds of similar style and construction but with different overall materials and designs.
Both beds were standard queen sized "platform" beds. The more complicated one included integrated cantilevered side tables and a headboard. The wood of choice for that bed was pecan, with a lovely figured pecan veneer headboard and solid side and footrails.
Both beds were designed to be broken down into side-rail, foot rail, and leg components for ease of moving.
