As you might recall, my assistant Jon has some cool design ideas such as the Artsy Fan C-Table we made last year. His next idea was for a daybed featuring a stylized Denver skyline headboard. Since the bed is for his young daughter, one of the design priorities was to make sure the headboard could be re-used in the future for a larger king-size bed, and we were able to accomplish that.
The primary joinery for the bed is Dominos along with Domino DF500 Knock-Down Hardware.
The finish we used was Walrus Oil. Jon wanted a finish that was easy to apply, easy to repair, and most importantly safe for his daughter. It’s hard to think of a finish that fits that description better than Walrus Oil. Walrus Oil has a wide range of products but the one we used was their Furniture Butter. It’s made from plant-based polymerized oils and hard waxes and applies with nothing more than a rag.
