« Part 1: Latest effort -Building a new bed Part 2 of Projects series Part 3: Kitchen Island »

My wife updated our middle son’s bed from a twin on a ‘loft’ to a double bed awhile back. My work schedule kept me from finishing the bed until now. (couple of months of him sleeping on the box spring and mattress on the floor)

Adam’s a football player, and still growing… so I decided to build it hefty. The legs are 2×6’s with 2×10’s for the rails (2×6’s glued and pocket screwed to them to hold the box spring).

Now my wife and he get to put some finish on it (it was all sanded before assembly)

I’ll make it a project when it is up and in use and Finished.

Thanks guys, that thing was so big, that ‘final’ assembly had to be done outside!

Looks good. Hope your son likes, it, and you can get it back inside! Too many times have I assembled something in a remote location, only to find out it can’t pass through some doorway!! UGH!

Hope all is well, and kudos on another great project!
