Shop Process: Madrone Sleigh Bed

We recently posted about some beautiful Madrone Kyoto Chairs that came through the shop fairly recently, and we have such a great selection of the lumber right now we thought it would be fun to also post about the the Madrone Sleigh Bed that our builder Eric was busy working on last week. This version of the Sleigh Bed is an archive piece, and is no longer included in our standard line. However, like all our archived pieces, we are happy to build it upon request! You can see our updated standard, the Contemporary Sleigh Bed on our site. This version has slightly more traditional details, like a deeper curve to the head and footboards, and classic details like scrollwork on the sides.

The Sleigh Beds are fun to see coming together because they have so many elegant parts, and there is a lot of work involved to get the curves just right. Above the bed is shown coming through assembly in its parts. Below, the headboard is clamped together as the glue dries.

 

A pretty side detail of the finished product!
