Large timber bed for a little guy. Built this for my son to transition to a big boys bed a couple years ago. 6×6 posts, 3×6 end rails with 1×6 T&G. Side rails are 4×8 with 3x corbels, set upside down for lower position, but with identical M/T into the posts, they can be rotated to raise the bed 6”. All rails M/T with 8” log screws.

With as solid as this bed looks the rule of “no jumping on the bed” is no longer valid.
Well done.

Great looking and sturdy bed, like the wood and finish which gave some rustic charm to it.
