Side Carving Close Up

This King Louis XV Rococo style bed was made by both my son Eric and myself. This is our first father and son piece of furniture made together for a customer.

Eric turned the four bedposts on the lathe he also made the footrest with the veneer starburst pattern on the front along with the headboard and side rails. Then I got to have some fun by making the two center scrolled acanthus leaf bouquets along with the four pieces of scrolled top trim. The scrolls and leafs are carved on both sides of each bouquet. The bed is made out of mahogany hardwoods and veneers.
