WOW. I bet it took a while. We make furniture and sell futons but we don’t build our futons. Very labor intensive. Good job.

Nice job. I like that you found an easier way for those slats than cutting all those mortises.

Great job. The worst part of projects like this is covering all the wonderful details with the cushions.

Great looking futon. We used to make quite a few of these for the University dorm rooms. Thanks for posting.

God Bless

Huck

Did you use the Rockler futon kit for the sliding mechanism?

I’m just at the point where I have to route that on my futon bed.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.
