My wife asked me to change the old mattress and bed frame in our future child’s room. It is built from construction lumber again, in a little bit different design than the earlier one. My next project is going to be a round crib for my little girl. I’ll take any advice for that project with welcome.

Only peice of advice I can give is sleep indoors. The bed looks great out on the lawn but you might want to move it inside if you don’t want critters bunking with you. LOL

Looks great to me. I Love the look of funiture with massive pieces of wood.

I like it, big and solid looking, yet the rounded corners soften enough to make it flow! As mentioned above why do you make her sleep outside?

It looks great! Massive but with gentle edging. Good work, love the grain!

Love the bed. The imperfections in the lines give it a cool log cabin kinda style. I was going to ask how the neighbors felt about you sleeping on the lawn but I see someone beat me to it.

That bed looks awesome and bombproof! I’m building beds out of dimensional lumber myself. May I ask what size wood you used?

Well…....that should hold up to almost anything! The only suggestion for the crib, use small timbers! lol.
Great job.

great looking bed… now all you have to do is build a room around it… reminds me of Toy Soldiers when they moved the Dean’s office into the courtyard… lol
