This is a bed I made for the youngest grandchild. The posts were turned from one piece each.
The ends are MDF & are recessed into the posts for added strength. I engraved Sarah’s name by hand with a router, simply used a fancy font from MS word, printed it on normal A$ paper, cut out the insides, drew it on the MDF then hand cut with the router.
The sides & slats are radiata pine.
It should last her a few more years yet.

That’s a nice bed, Grumpy. You’re sure good with the router.
