Default Arts and Crafts Style Panel Bed

Hi Guys. My latest project is a queen sized bed for my wife. The bed is inspired by the Stickley Bed pictured below. Thereís three videos in the series so far, and I hope to have more out soon. The quartersawn white oak grain on this wood I have looks really good in person, and Iím excited to see the bed come together.

To Watch the Video, for measured drawings and in-process pictures, you can visit the project page at Eagle Lake Woodworking:

What a coincidence, I was just watching your vid of the Super Sled - Crosscut and Miter Sled.

Your Motorized Router Lift has been discussed many times on here.

**Edit
By the way, I like Arts and Crafts style furniture. We have some Mission style furniture which is similar to it.

I am finishing up the crosscut miter sled and accessories.

Great looking sled! Artful photograpy too!
What kind of chair were you hoping to see built?

Thanks Bob. I appreciate you taking the time to watch the video. Not much routing in this project yet...

I look forward to showing you the rest of the series.

Hey Noob, glad you found my videos. Are you going to make a motorized router lift? You should consider it. Let me know if you need any help.

Arts and Crafts and Mission style are often used interchangeably. I love that style, and I think that's going to be my focus for a while. I'll probably make these nightstands next.

Thanks for the props. As pictured, I purchased a piece of birch ply with some voids. The white filler is used to fill the veneer that separated.

I was thinking of a Stickley inspired arm chair, doesn't have to be a bow-arm chair. Our furniture is pretty much Art's and Crafts so that kind of chair would fit in well.
