About This Project

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!

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$70
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Type of Wood: 
Pine
Finish Used: 
First, I used Minwax's water-based pre-stain wood conditioner. After waiting about 15 minutes, I sanded the wood again using 220 grit sandpaper. Then I used about four coats of Minwax's water-based "Sangria," to get the darkest color with that particular stain that I could possibly get. You have to allow 2 hours drying time between coats, and 3 hours after the final coat. Finally, I used 3 coats of Minwax's water-based polycrylic, again allowing to dry two hours between coats. I also lightly sanded with 220 grit sandpaper between coats of the polycrylic.

You Sound Like a Pro

Your first two projects are very professionally done. KUDOS for such a great job. Keep it up and your kids will soon be in the shop with you and it will become a family affair.
