The plans for this bed were great! I made 2 queens and one double bed using these plans with minor modification to add extra durability. Instead of using screws to attach the head and footboards, I used carriage bolts. I added 2X6s for additional bed feet (3 per side) as well as 2X4s (unattached-for ease of being able to move the bed). I also used 3/4" ply instead of slats in the middle section of the bed, this also allows for additional hiding/storage space in the middle of the bed. I could have chose to go another step forward and added hinges and an inset door handle to that middle ply for ease of using that space.
