I am new to woodworking. And, I am already in over my head. I want to make a pine bed for my 3 year old son. I want to use pine primarily because the other furniture in his room is pine, but also because it is inexpensive. Here is my problem. I cannot find any pine boards thicker than 1”. I originally wanted to use 4×4 posts for the legs, but can’t find any pine 4×4’s. Can I laminate the 1” thick boards together to “glue up” a 4×4? Will it be strong enough for a bed post? Will the glue joints hold up over time?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
