This is a technically challenging and labor intensive piece to create, but hopefully the results speak for themselves. The S curved panels in the head and footboards are veneered in beautifully figured curly walnut and then surrounded by similarly curved solid wood frames. The goose necked posts have thin stringing inlaid into their sides. The side rails are frame & panel construction which adds to the overall elegance of this piece. This might be the most beautiful sleigh bed in the world!
