I have built several from the Rockler package. The physics of the thing is pretty daunting, when you think about the weight of the bed and what’s required to keep it in the vertical position, and horizontal position, and be manageable in between.

You’ll need the kit, in my opinion.

It is challenging and fun. You’ll want to be sure your 3/4 panel stock is flat.
