This was my first major furniture piece. I built this from 4/4 stock soft maple. The headboard cap was made on a form from 3 1/4" maple boards. Glue-up was tricky. All is solid maple except for plywood panels. Converts to toddler bed with different front rail and later to a full-size bed with bed rails. Made from Wood Magazine plans. Currently building my 2nd out of Cherry!
Time to Build: 101-300 Hours
"I only get to visit the Pittsburgh store once a year so I make sure to make my visit count. The staff there is always helpful and very patient as I zip from aisle to aisle like a child in a toy store." -
