Baby Bed by Fabien

The bed: it is from beech, all the beams are made from saw milled plates and the end from massive laminated beech. the bed has no nail, is assembled any by the 8 keys on the sides (made in apple wood). the slatted bed base is done from “spruce” wood (I am not totally sure) and assembled by dowels and glue. Four beams in the front can be removed that the baby can access the bed alone. The finish is done with natural beeswax.

Just a live edge walnut slab with a butterfly inlay and small maple drawer with a piece edge drawer pull.
