I made it for my parents after 40 years using old bed. It’s made of 25 mm beech board, drawers are made of chipboard and they are on small wheels. Flexibile floring is from household store. Finish is waterbased varnish, three layers. Overal dimensions 195×165 cm.

It fits the room perfectly. Good use of the flooring for the slats, great idea. Nice build, I’m sure your mother loves it.

Looks great! Where do the plans come from? Do I see it wrong or the cross slats for mattress support are bowed upward a bit?

Thanks for all coments. My parents have decent sleep finaly.
Harum – no specific plans, all from my head – but there isn’t much to think with bed, the princip is always the same. Yes, cross slats are bowed upward, but as I said I bought such flooring in a store, I didn’t make them.
