Espeland Bed 2012

A friend of mine commissioned me to make a bed frame for her. I stole the design from Netwerch and modified it. The form reminded me of a spine and ribcage and I wanted to heighten that association. The modularity and knockdown assembly are also appealing as I would be shipping it out of state. But making it from scratch as a one-off was challenging. The bent plywood form required making a two-part mold and a special jig for cutting the interlocking tabs.
