Craftsman style bed

bed centered

This bed was a fusion of traditional craftsman style blended with asian inspired curved elements to develop a more modern feel.  The legs are curved on three sides for a dramatic flare towards the top and bottom.  The bed was constructed of some beautiful curly cherry and was accented with Bolivian rosewood inlays and pegs.   The construction of the lattice work was entirely mortise and tenon joinery.  The rails on the head and footboard were joined to the legs with tenons that went all the way through the legs and secured with the contrasting rosewood wedges. Since the client did not want the look of a center leg on the bed, an ash beam was added to provide the required support.   Additional ash slats and plywood were added complete a very sturdy platform.
