My first Chunky Build

This is my first build and im really proud of it. We needed a new platform bed to fit our new matress! Yeah! a queen size bed! I discovered ana's blog and i got really inspired by all the projects in the blog!

For the construction, i used birch for the showing parts, pine for side rails and center support and spruce for the slats.
Actually, i haved cut de sides and builded the legs then i oiled evething before assembling.
I used my Kreg Jig r3 to join the sides and i used a corner metal bracket to join the legs to the sides! Everything is attached from the inside, so no filler needed!

I also decided to use 1x6 for the legs to get a taller bed. If you want your matress lower in the frame use 2x4 instead of 2x6 for the center support. Adjust de side rails to fit with the 2x4.

Can't wait to build something new!

FYI: I know my english is bad but its not my first language!Im french canadian!
