I've only made a bed for a child but I suppose the principles are the same for an adult bed. I also made the frame too wide. I made the frame the size of the mattress then dropped it inside the 2 side rails on metal angles. I should have made the frame the width of the mattress LESS the combined width of the 2 side rails. That way, the mattress would have covered the side rails.
I shall be prepared next time.
