After completing the Steiger Workbench, I was asked to put together a simple platform bed. This is a low platform designed to fit one of the newer pillow-top super-thick matresses (the matress is something like 15" thick). I've personally never like beds that are so far off the floor that when you sit on it, your feet don't touch the floor. That's not a problem with this design.

Red elm, purpleheart, poplar slats and cross supports. Shellac finish (for an easy to repair finish when the dogs scratch the wood).
