Bedroom Set

We’re working on a bedroom set this month, which includes two nightstands, a large headboard with storage, and a ten-foot-long by seven-foot-high, built-in dresser (actually, I’m not sure you can call something that big a dresser -- maybe an extremely large dresser, an ELD).

All the pieces have an Asian presence, which adds to a feel of serenity appropriate for the bedroom. The work is framed in ebonized Honduras mahogany with panels veneered with quatersawn African mahogany. The regular, straight grain of the veneer has almost an hypnotic quality, making it a good choice for the room where we hope to sleep.

The frame pieces are subtly curved in cross section, and joined with a three-way miter at the corners. You can see a close up of the joint. All the miters have loose tenons in them.

These are not flashy pieces, but I like them: nice design, nice details, nice materials. Just right for the boudoire.
