Hey guys. Just finished my first project. Had limited tools but turned out much cheaper than buying a bed.Waiting on the new mattress to be delivered to fit the space.
>>1645622Very cool OP. What was the total? I night do something like this sometime.
>>1645625All in all the timber cost around £100-120.Wasn't able to fit a king size bed due to the width of the room. so made a frame to fit 2 single mattress. Gained around 2 foot in width.
Don't like the shelves and on the first pic the wood looks kinda cheap (oak?) but on the second one, its looks cool af.But overall it looks really sweet.
>>1645622Good looking, what type of varnish did you use? I'd go for honey color varnish if you want a 2nd coat.
>>1645677>>1645689Cheers guys. Used cheap soft wood with a walnut stain.
>>1645690 cheap soft wood Should of used hardwood for mattress frame but well done lad
>>1645696Hardwood would only add a visual benefit, and I doubt op had the budget to justify that alone.If your referring to the mattress support, my own bed has a lattice grid of 2x5 pine and is bulletproof.
What I presume is a Brit, with what looks like MAGA hats. I like it!Props on the bed as well.
