This is a simple bed I just finished for my middle son. It’s the first time I’ve ever made a bed. It’s not perfect, but should be very functional. It’s made from 1×4 lumber grade cedar. I used a belt sander to smooth out the rough side of the lumber and a router with a round over bit to smooth out the edges. I’m in the process of coating it with three coats of polycrylic satin.
