This custom made bed was designed for clients living on the shores of the Potomac River, nearly at the mouth to the Chesapeake Bay. Gazing from their newly finished bedroom I could look all the way across the miles-wide river, see the horizon along the bay and watch freighters steaming to Baltimore. Sky and water, calm and fury, our inland sea. My clients, partial to dolphins suggested that a pair be carved, jumping from the sea into the air. Hence the design using walnut relief carvings attached to the headboard, with a small cherry seagull flying overhead. Ambrosia maple was selected for the sea, with an abundance of streaks suggesting a school of fish diving deep. A tulip poplar plank with wispy heartwood became the sky. In time, the heartwood will turn light brown, mimicking the light cloud layers often found at sea. A tall bed, it was designed to accommodate different thickness mattress/box spring sets while retaining the original bed height. All four posts can be removed with bed bolts for easy transport.
