Rosewood Storage Bed with Night Stands
For this bed it was requested that the drawers be very deep- 10 inches as opposed to the normal 5 - 6 inches. So I decided to build them out of baltic birch plywood and cover them with a veneer. The veneer is Indian rosewood while the bed is mostly South American rosewood, but I think it made for an interesting contrast. The headboard is really interesting too- it's got all kinds of birdseye-like markings and highly expressive grain action. I don't really have any idea what type of wood it is but it was mixed in with my stock of rosewood and it looked awesome so I used it. I also really like the pulls on the night stand drawers.
