New bed!

I finally finished cutting up the wood for my oak bed in my Argosy. It's made out of oak 1x4 and 1/2 inch oak ply for the counters and panels. It's hopefully getting stained tomorrow! What do you think?

Will the whole area be the mattress?

Where the six panels are, yes. It's about the size of a queen mattress. Under each counter and the six panels is also storage or access to electrical/plumbing

Looks good, having a queen size bed and a real mattress equals a good night sleep. Post a couple pics if the finished project.

We are doing the same in our 1977 31" Airstream but haven't started yet (working on the frame and brake repairs). Looks great! Have any pictures of the underlying support. Trying to get ideas for when I build ours.

Don't mind the mess! I literally just finished putting on the first coat of poly. Finished staining yesterday.

So here is the rest of it put back together. I put a nice coat of stain and poly on it. I'm missing the molding around the edge but it's done! Now to the mattresses in.

Looks great, The stain and poly really bring out the grain in the oak. With the panoramic windows you will think that you are sleeping out side. Really nice I like it. Are you going to put any electric outlets in at the headboard area? Might be handy.

I like all the storage area, especially room for the spare tire. Again, it looks great.

This is amazing - and I love all of the storage underneath. We just finished repairing our bedroom floor and are trying to decide what to do for a bed. In there meantime, we have an air mattress because I can't wait to get on the road!!
Thanks so much!!

Streamline, yes I plan on putting an outlet plus some USB outlets for phone chargers (I'll connect those to the 12v system). I still need to finish the storage under the bed so until then everything will be loosely fastened, such as the counter tops. We just want to start using it this coming July 4 weekend!

Judflor, thank you! Storage is pretty limited everywhere else in the RV. I wont even use the cabinets under the sink because they are all open and I found lots of mouse droppings. The whole kitchen cabinet is going to be replaced at some point soon so until then everything goes under the bed and in a few other areas.

Rhino33, Thank you as well. Whatever you do, use hardwood like I did. I originally started out with basic 2x4 construction and ended up cracking one of the supports when I sat my fat behind on it. I got so upset that I literally took my ax to all of my work and tore it out. I have been working with the oak since winter to get this bed in. Its no where near perfect, as it was my first wood working project ever, but at least it looks nice.

I see you are from New York, where are you traveling over the 4th. I have spent a bunch of time in the 1000 Islands and St. Lawrence river area.

For the 4th we will be in the Chautauqua area at Camp Chautauqua visiting my parents. They've had a trailer there for years and its tradition to go there every year. We will be in the 1000 Islands area for labor day weekend, staying a Wellesley Island State Park, right on the river. Totally looking forward to that trip!
