It consists of a pair of cross pieces, the height and width of which match the height and width of the intended frame size. The four cut out corners of one cross piece have ...

I even tried to trick the system into using more kid friendly ads by putting ta...

It is from the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Tennessee. They have a “Make Over” next Monday and need me to build a batman themed bed.
