It came out very nice. I like the style. You should take a picture without the fouton mattress to show the frame or inner workings of what you did. You see the metal fouton frames everywhere, I bet there are many, many people who would be envious of this frame.

I built a picture frame in highschool. Mitered corners and I was allowed to route one edge. I wish I had went to your school. Good job.

Great job…and I’ll second Rex’s statement. Even back in my day (I’ll not belabor the point…walking to school in the snow…etc..etc….) we did not get to build more then boxes or toys..some of us were even lucky enough to use the lathe…
