This was my summer project in preparation for my daughter moving up to a ‘big girl bed’.
It is 100% solid oak with the exception of the drawer bottoms – they are plywood.
I have always been a fan of ball bearing drawer glides and they work great here.
A removable headboard is in my design. It will use steel dowels and set screws.
The wood has saw marks left for a rustic look, but I am not sure how well that matches Princesses.
A side note here: I nicked my thumb on the table saw while working on this piece. Remember the push stick!
