Made this bed from from plans developed in Sketchup.  Used 8/4 Mahogany planks resawed to get the desired parts.  Mattress height was carefully set to enable transfer of owner to and from her wheelchair. Finished with water-based acrylic.  This is the first time I have sprayed this type of finish.  It worked suprisingly well and went on very easy.
