About This Project

not sure what kind of wood. Just the regular old builder grade stuff from HD

My son wanted a bigger bed so when his friends and cousins sleep over they dont have to squeeze into his twin. My son is 12 by the way, so when I got a king I gave him my queen. I needed to raise it up because I knew I wanted to build a trundle to put under it. This bed is pretty heavy, very sturdy (even with 5 kids sleeping on it or jumping on it) I took the idea from my Malm bed from ikea but its a lot heavier and stronger
