Synopsis: Christian Becksvoort didn't have time to build a sleigh bed he liked, so he figured out how to capture the essence and build it efficiently - in less than 100 hours.The bed is a very simple construction.
The headboard and footboard assemblies are joined to a pair of thick rails with knockdown fasteners.These assemblies are each made up of two posts into which are tenoned a turned crest rail and a flat lower rail.
A single large panel floats in grooves in both posts and in the crest and lower rails.A template speeds fabrication of the posts, and he explains how he laid out and cut the mortises and sized the side rails.
A detailed project plan and lots of photos illustrate his construction, and a side explanation addresses how to turn rosettes...
