England’s Queen Victorian Style King Size Bed
Joint Brothers Venture....This beautiful original design Kingsize bed.
Dan Zongker, met with the customer anddesigned three pieces of furniture for their bedroom, a bed, dresser, andnightstand. The customer was looking for something traditional with carving andsome kind of burl veneer.
The design he came up with was a style that is named for England’s QueenVictoria, who reigned from 1837 to 1901. This was a style applied to Englishand American furniture of that time. This style of furniture elaborates onRococo and Louis XV style, with exaggerated curves and size, lush upholstery,and carvings. This 18th Century traditional design gives this bedroom set anexquisite look, which complement both elegance and grace.
Dennis Zongker then engineered the pieces on AutoCAD, except for the carvings,which he drew free hand. He did all the carving by hand. The bedroom set ismade out of solid cherry and cherry veneer core plywood, Maple Burl Veneer. Thecrown molding I cut 16 layers of 1/8” solid cherry then glued them together ona radius template to equal the 1 3/4” thickness.
One of the things Dennis enjoyed was making the radius crown moldings andfitting the center fan carving with the scrolls to the radius crown. He had tocope the inside top edge of the crown to match the radius of the scrolls.Dennis worked on this set for three months.
