Well here is the finished bed. I didn’t rip the 2×4’s down to 2½ ” like it calls for in the plans and it shows on the side rails. I should have made the side rails longer to make up the difference but I didn’t. The side rails were the first thing that I cut. That is the reason I have to give this project a Grade of F. I can make new side rails later but I should have done it right the first time.

Certainly not an “F”! Solid & functional. Maybe not perfect but if you learned from it that also raises the grade. We all would like to be a master craftsman. Maybe we won’t make it,but we can be the best craftsman we’re capable of being each time we try.

Keep trying & keep learning.

Now you can experiment with ‘decorative’ trim to make the errors disappear. I have gotten quite good at this art for the same types of learning experiences. The bed looks good.

I agree with Chris., a little thought and you, like me, should be able to turn errors into features!
