Question for you Rex. Doesn’t the picture I provided look like they just used common 1x pine and 4×4’s for the posts? It doesn’t look like select wood to me?

Every time I go to get lumber everyone tries to talk me out of using common pine to build furniture items around the house. I mean I understand the argument about using nice hardwood for highly visible pieces. But I really like the look of the bed with the knots on it. Also, I don’t want to spend a lot on lumber right now because I’m still learning so cheap pine seems the way to go. If it’s possible to make a bed look that using common pine from Home Depot I’d be happy.

Thanks for your time!
