My wife and I are expecting many things. One of them is a baby :-D Another is house guests. Since the baby will be taking the “guest” room, the third bedroom which we called an “Office” gets to be remade into a room that will host guests, an office desk, and a library. To allow our guests to sleep on something other than the floor we decided we needed a day / trundle bed for that room.
So I said to myself. . . Self! – How hard could it be to build one of those things??? There are times in life when ignorance is such a wonderful thing. :-) While I didn’t find the actual cutting, routing, fastening, and finishing as difficult as I had feared it would be, I did learn that it’s harder to design than to build, and it took much longer that I expected it too take. But I got it done prior to the baby’s arrival (5 weeks or so)!!!
I had only really done a picnic table and a couple of small boxes prior to this, so it was a huge leap for me. I would say that I lack experience, but I sure gained a lot while doing this project. If you see something that could have done differently let me know, I’m interested in learning more.
Thank you for your comments in advance.
