Today while on my way home i drove by a residence that had thrown out a perfectly good Queen Size bed frame made completely of wood… if I am correct the species is a low cost Poplar, however the wood is in absolute New condition, with no defects.
Now the delima, I have no need for or room for a queen size bed. So I am trying to come up with an idea of a project to make with this wood.. At first thought, I thought i could cut the bed platform in sections leaving 3 rungs per section..adding some supports and mounting hardware and making wall mounted quilt hangers ..Novel idea.. But I would like to get the input of some of you Lumber jocks out there and see what other ideas come to mind… Now as an added twist to this Trash to treasure adventure…Whatever projects or build comes from this discussion…The finished product(s) will be sold or auctioned off in my community as well as online and the proceeds from the sale or auction will be donated to the Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Program and the LiveStrong Foundation…
