The posts on this queen-size cherry bed at 71.5” inches tall including the lathed finials. The bed is fastened together with old fashioned bed bolts covered with brass ovals. I picked through stacks of cherry and was lucky enough to find a cherry boards with curved grain to match the arc of the
Panel Sleigh bed
The carcass of this bed is made from cherry including the large round pieces from glued up cherry and then rounded in a large lathe. These large ‘dowels’ were then put in jig to run through lengthwise through a table saw with a ¾ daddo blade to be able accept the frame with panels. The floating raised
maple panels were framed with cherry. The rails of the bed were curved to align the headboard and foot board. Headboard is 54.5” high and footboard is 49” high. The bed was given to friends and is one of just a few pieces of furniture they took with them when the moved to Malorca, Spain, an island in the Mediterranean.
