Thought I would start a new thread as the other one is quite old and people may not see it.

Hi all,
I'm away back offshore for two weeks but the bed is nearing completion and I'm fairly happy with the results.

Any ideas on what to use to finish this would be appreciated, torn between a few things just now, but the main contenders are either Danish oil or Osmo Polyx oil.

After all the discussion about KD fittings, as you will see from the last picture I made up a couple of Ash blocks, one overlapping the joint with two coach bolts, glued and screwed to the inside rail of the side rail and corners, seems to work alright.

Have attached several photos as is, and more of the build and the simple jig I made for floating tenons.

Thanks
Robert

Curious what the 'window' is for?
Around 1971 on the day I took possession of my first house, I too delivery of some 6x1 boards.
By nightfall we had a (more modest) but similar bed, as per the Readers Digest DIY manual :)
With a few blisters... we slept in it that night!

The window? Do you mean the panels in the headboard snd footboard?
If so, they are going to be filled with leather panels, with foam in, my wife is just making them just now, this is one of them
