Great product - Not for the amateur builderPosted November 4, 2014
So why not 5 stars. I am not a professional carpenter, but I am very good and very precise in my work, I design and make custom picture frames. I am warning any weekend warrior - this may not a project for you, especially if you don't have very good tools. If your work is imprecise, even by an 1/8 of an inch, you will not be happy with the results. For the mechanism to be assembled and used, you must install and assemble the parts VERY precisely. Also, there are errors in the plan. It was designed in centimeters and converted to inches and fractions. Unfortunately, this doesn't always work perfectly. 1 millimeter is not 1/16, it is smaller. If you are comfortable with the concept, I would suggest using the metric design plan (included) and build it with a metric tape measure.
Other notes: There is not a materials list, you have to figure it out. I think it took at least 5 sheets of 3/4 ply, 2 sheets of 1/4 ply, a lot of hardware, 12 - 1x6 slats, 2-7 foot long square steel tubes, stain and finish, etc. I think the materials were over $700. Add a mattress and you are touching $1,500 for this set up. Worth it, but you might look into buying this pre-cut and just assemble the parts (look on the Internet, there are several choices).
If you buy and build this, here are the errors that you should check on the metric plan: exact position of lift mechanism mounted to side panels, thickness of small pieces that hide it are 1 inch, not 1.5 inches. I would recommend not drilling the holes the locking pins slide into until the whole thing is assembled. It is just too precise to line up otherwise.
Good luck, otherwise very satisfying and beautiful project.
