2 New Bed Designs

This first bed was built for Soseh, a punk rocker in Silver Lake who shares a last name with a very notorious man. She asked me to build her a bed with a huge headboard and lots of knots and interesting grain pattern. I had dreamed up this design for the legs some time ago, and was waiting for an opportunity to put it to use, so I figured this was a good chance. I couldn't be happier with the way my leg design worked with the enormous headboard.
This second bed I built for my friend Josh, who recently accepted a senior pastor position at a church in New Mexico. Like Soseh, Josh gave me a lot of room- complete freedom in fact- to do what I wanted with the design. So I again used the leg design I had been sitting on and used a more typical headboard, but created some interest with the posts supporting it. I like that these posts echo the curve of the legs, bringing a certain cohesion to the design.
