"Admirers of designs by Charles and Henry Greene for the Gamble House in Pasadena, California will love this queen-size bed. There's a lot to like about the way the cloud lifts lighten the mass of the bed and the ebony plugs and splines pop against the cherry bed parts. The cloud lifts appear difficult, but they can actually be cut with little trouble at the bandsaw. This project includes clever techniques for fitting the spindles between the top and middle rail and fitting the mitered top rail between the two legs. Stepped mortises in the top rail make it possible to hide the spindle's top shoulder, so the only concern is the shoulder on the middle rail. And fitting the top rail to the legs when they're dry-fit with the lower rails provides a solid and square assembly from which to work. SKILL LEVEL: IntermediateFINISHED SIZE: 65"" W by 82-3/4""L by 38-3/4""HPRINTED PLAN INCLUDES: .Scale drawings .Detailed cutlist .Step-by-step companion article"
