About This Project

Dimensional lumber pine and quality pine boards

This is my first woodworking project. The plans worked out great! However I did make some minor changes. I made the two by four under the two by six top an inch longer on each end. I also did not brad nail the 1x4 trim pieces. I used wooden dowels and wood glue. Also I bought bed rail brackets and mounted the side rails flush to the outside of the head and footboard. This piece was conditioned with Charles Neil's Prestain conditioner and stained with minwax English chestnut. Topcoat is minwax semigloss fast drying poly and rubbed out with minwax paste wax. Can't wait to get to sleep in it tonight!!
