Another coronavirus project
« on: April 20, 2020, 08:55 AM »
Just finished a Queen Anne style white oak bed. Started with rough sawn (5/4, 4/4) white oak.
Finished with two coats of osmo clear matte. Boss didn't want sheen. Pictures aren't the greatest, due to poor lighting in the basement.

Very Nice, I’ve been wanting to make something for a Cali king.  But, I need a couple more tools for that.

@lshah72414  Great work!  Thanks for sharing.

How are the rails attached?  How about some more details on construction.

Thanks, Mike A.

The vertical rails are attached using 6mm dominoes. Horizontal rails on front and back I used 5mm dominoes.
Glue up on the vertical rails was tough. I had to fit 22 dominoes at a time, before the glue set up.
Everything is glued up pretty much, except for the cleats on the rails that connect the front and back frames. I used glue and some grk screws. In hindsight, I should have used dominoes on everything.

Oh and on the head and foot wide rails, I used 8mm dominoes.

Back to work now, but finished up a nightstand to go with my bed. Used 5/4 and 4/4 rift and quarter sawn rough white oak. Panels are bookmatched and were cut on bandsaw, and planed.
Plans came from Greg Paolinis book, it's origin is Gustav Stickley. Placed rabbets for front of drawer and pinned with 3/16" dowels.  As usual there are errors. Finished with three coats of clear Osmo. I really like how the wood came out.
