As time goes on, I’m getting closer and closer to replacing every piece of furniture in my house with something I built with my own hands. A lofty goal! This King Size Bed is one of the bigger ticket items on that shrinking list!
I used Cherry as my primary wood while featuring Walnut panels. I like the contrast, but over time the Cherry will darken and the Walnut will actually get lighter. When it’s all said and done the contrast won’t be so dramatic. A Note About Tools

In fact, the plans I’ve included show standard mortise and tenon joints instead of loose tenons as shown in the video.
