This was my second project that I completed to go along with the Daybed With Three Trundle Drawers For Storage that I made for my son.
The original plans for this bed state that you need three 1 x 12 x 8's, but you actually need 4. The two middle 42 3/4" boards on the inside are missing from the cut list, but you can see them in the diagram.
I am so happy with the way this turned out! It was a little more challenging with the wider width boards--I had to force them on the line because they weren't perfectly straight. But overall, I am very happy with this.
When I drilled the holes for the shelf pins using the Kreg shelf pin jig, I used the 1" inset on the outside 2 columns, and the 2" inset on the center column. This way I avoided have holes that were drilled all the way through the board.
Between this and the storage daybed, I have really freed up so much space in my son's small bedroom! Happy building!
