I made this bed last year as a favor for family. They didn’t want to spend a lot of money so I just used plain dimentional lumber from the BORG and painted it white.
The ends are 2×4’s with screwed butt joints. The top and bottom rails have dados to accept the 1×3’s. There is a 1×4 on the top.
I used the bed frame brackets from Rockler to attach the side beams. I was really pleased with them and they went on easy. I put hardwood dowels across where the screws went in for the side beams for extra support.
As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.
