Custom Wood Furniture / handmade in Wichita, Kansas
Finally got the panels in the foot board. I Just put a clear coat over the whole thing so later this weekend I can buff it out . This will help the new panels blend into the original. It is really cold so the heat will have to stay on in the shop tonight.

Here is the original Queen size foot board without the panels:
Here it is as a King size bed with wet clear coat in the shop:
I was fortunate to find a beautiful piece of quarter sawn white oak while in a Lumber store in Colorado Springs a while back. The grain matched the bed really well. The Head board is next. I believe it will be easier. The head board panels are made and ready to be mortised in. Maybe we will start this weekend.
Beautiful work as always Mark Vi Bowman
