« Part 4: The Finish Part 5 of Boat Bed series no next part

The finish is dry and all that is left is the final assembly. Now these many pieces have to be put together. The side rails had to have the brackets placed and the portholes attached. The toy box had to have the lid mounted, cleats put on and wheels added to the bottom. The headboard had the lights installed with the switch and the back tact on. I cut 9 slats for this bed since it will take just a mattress only. I ripped a 1×12 down in thirds (about 3 5/8”). As soon as I get it written I’ll post the project.

Here are some pictures:
