This was the first project that I have ever attempted, and I do believe it came out very nice. The color is red oak, and it has 3 coats of lacquer on it. I adjusted the plan sizes to make it from a queen sized bed into a king size bed. It took a lot of hours to build it due to measuring and cutting and ensuring accurate cuts, fitment, and square. The bed is made out of primarily Oak hardwood, but the 4x4 posts are ceder because Home Depot did not have oak 4x4 posts. The regular lumber (2x4, 1x3, 2x6 ect.) is white wood.
