Antique Tall Oak Panel Bed > Queen

New legs were milled and attached to the existing legs using biscuits, recessed wood screws, and West Systems Epoxy.

New 82 inch long bed rails are 4/4 thick. Thankful to have a 12 foot ceiling when using the table saw to cut mortises for new hook-in hardware.

The bed was set up to check for proper measurements and adjustments.

Yes, the wood was stained yellow to gain the base color needed.

The first glaze step with sealer.

Up on buckets. The first glaze step is coming up too light. A second application is needed.

A second glaze step gives the new wood an old look. A sealer has been added.

5/0 Conversion project is complete.
