Happy New Year, folks! Our first blog for the 2015 year (after a long 6 month absence) is written by Bart Thrasher himself (with a large amount of guidance from his wife, Karen). Welcome back!
One of my favorite clients underwent another major renovation to their home in the Vickery Place neighborhood of Dallas last year. This is the same home which has the beautiful figured maple kitchen by yours truly. For this addition / renovation, Thrasher Works was selected to build all the millwork including the pictured master bed.
The bed is a king sized platform bed designed by Daron Tapscott, a fellow architect in the neighborhood. As you can see, the bed is built in with storage below and to each side. I used a domestic veneer core maple plywood with highly figured maple panels on the headboard. Note, the center section of the headboard is to be upholstered (photos coming soon).
