We needed a bed for the kids, and I got the plan from Mattias Wandel’s website. This is my first furniture project. I built it using a miter saw, a circular saw, a power hand planer, and a cordless drill. It’s made entirely of construction lumber from a big box store.
The headboard and footboard are joined with3/4 inch dowels, and the rails are attached with wood screws. I didn’t have a power sander at the time so I used a sanding block for all the sanding. I finished it with minwax stain and a polyacrilic coat.
The I am pleased with how it turned out. It is very sturdy.
