Quick little job I did this morning. Took about 3 hours.
My neighbor (a young couple) had a baby that was born with spinal bifida.
Needless to say it drained their pocket book.
The baby is about 3 months now so they were talking about getting a bed that they could lay on the floor next to their bed but they didn’t have the money so they would have to wait until they saved enough.
Well, I have a wood shop so…....I whittled this up all out of scrap.
The whole bed is 33×57. The headboard is 15” tall, the footboard is 10” tall. The side rails are 4” tall.
The 4 posts are oak, the panels are mdf, the top of the headboard and footboard are poplar and the side frames are pine.
I used some brass hinges that I had left over for the corner brackets.
Neighbors haven’t seen it yet, but I’m sure they will be surprised.
I still have to paint it, but she may do it since she is very artistic.
Love thy Neighbor!
