President Carter made this walnut bed for his daughter Amy’s bedroom at their Plains, Georgia home. Noted elements include a hand-carved geometric medallion in the center of the headboard and the simple, decorative mortise and tenon joinery used. This furniture piece was selected for 3D documentation with input and collaboration with the Carter family, the National Park Service, and the Friends of Jimmy Carter National Historical Park. Methods used to document the bed included 3D structured light scanning with photographic texture mapping. Photogrammetric methods were also used.
