I moved my son from his toddle bed to a twin bed, and didn’t want to lose playing room.(small bedroom)

I built from Red Oak & Plywood.
The box that the mattress sits in is made from plywood and attaches with french cleats to the Headboard/Footboard. I then used a couple of lag bolts to make the connection child proof.

Nice space saver.
The cross brace is a nice add on for stability that I should have thought of when I built one for my grandson.
I see toy boxes in your future…....................

My first thought was, that boy has a fort! It will look good in his dorm room too. Well done.
