Walnut Bed with Live-Edge Headboard

This was a fun and challenging build handling a raw walnut slab of almost 300 pounds. Four tap-and-release drawers are hidden underneath - two on either side. The drawer faces were cut from a single piece of walnut to provide continuity of grain, which, combined with self-closing precision slides, allows the drawers to virtually disappear. This piece was built for a couple moving into a their new house, and they were thrilled that their handmade bed was the first thing in the door.
