Auburn University Themed Fillman Platform Bed

I built this Auburn University themed platform bed for our son. It works perfectly for him, and he absolutely loves it. I added a custom "Tiger Eyes" wood logo, which makes this a one-of-a-kind bed.

The construction of the bed was straight-forward due to the great plans I found on this site. The finishing process actually took longer than the build!

I made a few minor tweaks to the plan, such as using a combination of dowels and wood screws on the frame joints, and using a router to put a 1/2" radius round-over edge on the platform boards, and a 5/32" Roman Ogee edge on the top plate of the headboard.

We used spray paint for the finishing process (Rust-Oleum Gloss Orange and Krylon Gloss Navy), followed with a few coats of Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane.

Cool project. I am sure that this kind of extracurricular activities relieves the educational load and develops the creative potential of students. And if students get carried away and do not have time to cover their academic debts, then you can always turn to for help. It would be great if all students kept similar sources at hand.
