In this video I make an elegant day bed for under $45!
Made entirely out of 2×4s for the frame and recycled pine decking for the slats, all that’s missing is a mattress and some sunny weather!

Note: I will be the first person to say that I should add a rail down the center of the bed and I will be doing so, but as I am waiting for hardware to arrive from overseas I decided to upload the video before the project was completely finished.

Nice project. Very useful and inexpensive.

BTW, how’s the shop remodel coming along?

Nice job.
Who makes the hand held double borer you used for the dowel holes.

Nobuckle – its coming along nicely, It has slowed down a bit as it is a functioning space again, But have got a few ideas i would like to incorporate still, the big one being a sanding area with down draft table and alike.

RH913 – The dowling machine is made by 909 powertools, I did a video a while ago as a “first impressions” review, and can say months later i am very happy with it, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGrgKOTn1o4
