I really enjoyed building this bed! This project went very smoothly and it has a lot to do with the Create-A-Bed Hardware Kit. The full length DVD and instruction booklets were perfect. The layout diagrams and measurments in the booklets were spot on! To describe this project in a few words, This bed is very cool!

Just one or two caveats: Have good skills and access to a good table saw with a big table. Not a project for the weekend warrior with basic carpentry skills. An error of 1/32 inch is too much. Mine turned out fine and I'm glad I built it.

This kit sat in the closet for 2 years before I started building it. Finally, it's completed! The instructions and DVD are very thorough and easy to read. Just follow the plan step by step and it works out. It's fairly forgiving of slight measurement errors as well except in the hardware installation part. There is a fair amount of extra wood so plan on building shelves or something with the leftover. One sheet of 1/4 inch would do the trick as the other comment said. Some of the mattress supports can be cut from the scrap plywood as well as verified by my call to the company to ask that. Overall, it's a good plan and good product.

Just finished this project today. First of all, the manuals are awesome, however you definitiely need the video to fill in some gaps. watch the video start to finish at least twice before starting and before each major step. Your measurements need to be exact for it all to work. I also had occasion to call the folks to answer a question for me, they were very friendly and Bill knew the answer off the top of his head - again very impressive. (BTW - Bill told me the gap at the bottom of the face panel from the finished floor was 2-3/8", it was exactly that!) Two other points, 1) other comments have mentioned finishing, I completely finished all parts before building, this slowed me down, but when it was done, it was done, watching the video shows you the areas which get glued, so you do not finish them; I highly recommend this approach. 2) You only need one sheet of 1/4" plywood for under the mattress (for a full), the plans say to use two strips from two sheets, i used 0ne 48" w x 75" strip and filled the rest with 6" strips from the offcut from the same sheet, since this is not a structural component, no problem. maybe I will sleep downstairs tonight!

The hardware is first class and the plans are very detailed. I had to adjust the plans in a couple of places because my hardwood is 13/16 instead of 3/4. I also used longer screws when attaching the top (for safety reasons). I build for friends for an office and they are very pleased with the final product. You can raise and lower the bed with very little effort!!

I added storage cabinets, a shelf/release mechanism, and folding work tables to this full sized bed. These modifications made it more useful in my wife's hobby room.

We completed this bed assembly on a Saturday with very few issues took about 13 hours. We had the birch plywood cut for us at the mill, well worth the 40$ they charged us. We are very happy with our bed. The only thing I would have changed is that I would have stained all the wood before assembly. There are several areas you can't reach once assembled. We had the DVD playing as we did each step in the assembly room and I think this made it go so smoothly.
