Mission Style Red Oak Bed

This is a solid red oak mission style king size bed. There is extensive use of mortise and tenon joinery throughout the design. Square pegging of joints on the footboard, headboard and side rails add strength and continue the hand crafted heirloom design. The stretchers and feet for the stretchers are also all solid red oak and are fitted into the side rails via mortise and tenon joinery.

The finish is based upon the recipe by Sam Maloof. A total of 6 coats of finish are hand applied to each piece of the bed, including the stretchers and feet. Each coat is hand buffed to a fine luster. The end result is a finish that penetrates deeply into the wood and provides years of protection for this fine piece of furniture.
