Wood = Pine
Finish = Minwax Special Walnut (after Pre-Stain)
This was a pretty straight forward build, but nice to have an extra set of hands. On the top board of the head/footboard, a countersink bit was used to recess the screw heads (otherwise, all fasteners in the plan are concealed). Then a mixture of glue/sawdust was used to smooth over the countersink hole. The whole project was sanded starting with 60 working up to 220.
We followed the plan, and in the photo this is the height of the bed with box springs and mattress. The bed feels sturdy and comfortable. It was a fun project and my first shot at interior furniture.
