Project Description

What are you most proud of? That it is level, plumb and square. AND that I did it all w/out any help. My first real building project start to finish all alone....Even though I have been puttering w/this sort of thing for years, this really turned out super and I am proud that I built it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make certain that you can handle the tools. If you are using a circular saw, be sure that you can lift it and maneuver it easily, for safety sake. If not I would have someone help you with the cutting. I have a 12V cordless, 4" saw. I LOVE IT because I can handle it easily and it cuts most of what I need to cut. I pre-drilled all the holes so that the wood wouldn't split. Measure twice and cut once is great advice.

What you will need

  • I used an old twin bed headboard and footboard. Plus a 1x4x8' board and a 1/2" piece of plywood. I purchased the bed for $15 at a second hand store
  • and purchased the board at my local hardware store. My wonderful hubby gave me tools for Christmas last year and this was my first project to use my "mini" circular saw. I LOVE IT!. The tools are great to have so now I don't have to wait for him to be home to help me out.
