Thread: Twin Bed for my Son

  1. #1

    Twin Bed for my Son

    I finally got all moved and most everything set up in the house. After moving and finally having a garage to work in now I wanted to start a project. I decided to make one of my sons a twin bed. Matthias Wandel has some nice plans on his website so I used one of those. This has been real fun. Even though I am a machinist by trade I had to sit down a few times and really think about what I was doing before I messed up LOL. I have all the parts cut and I have put the bed together just to make sure it would work. I will post a finished photo once I get it stained.

    Well here is the finished bed. I didn't rip the 2 x 4's down to 2 " and it shows on the side rails. I should have made the side rails longer to make up the difference but I didn't. That is the reason I have to give this project a Grade of F. I can make new side rails later but I should have done it right the first time.

    You are too hard on yourself. Doesn't look bad with the short side rails. Nice job
