Client requested a bed and matching nightstand for her son's first pieces of adult-sized furniture. She was unsuccssful finding anything to her like in retail furniture outlets. Her concerns were quality, durabilty & a style resembling pieces from the Arts & Craft, Craftsman or Mission design.
The bed features bedposts with pegged mortise & tenons in both the headboard and footboard. The spindles on the headboard are also let in with mortise & tenon joinery.
The bedside table features hand-cut dovetail drawers and the side slats are set using mortise & tenon joinery.
Both pieces are made of oak with a child-safe natural finish that will darken with age.
Dimensions: The bed is queen size with the height of the headboard being 40". The nightstand is 20" width x 30" height and 16" depth.
