This was my first big project. My skill level between the first day and the last day were worlds apart. I got the plans from a book. For ease of moving, the arms are built separate from the frame and once moved to the guest room, I attached them with pocket screws hidden in a few spots.

Thanks. I’ve learned so much from that project. Probably my biggest discovery was that when I cut down huge sheets of plywood with a circular saw and a straight edge, it’s better to cut everything about 1/4-inch wider to account for the less-than-perfect cut. Then, I toss those pieces on my table saw to get that perfect edge.

Have your say...
