Mission Bed Frame
I built this bed frame from black Walnut in my senior year of high school. It took me most of one semester in one-hour segments. The footboard is a shorter version of the headboard. The frame is held together with decorative bolts and tenons. The mattress is supported by Douglas fir 2x3s which rest on angle iron screwed to the insides of the rails. The finish is brushed lacquer.
