Kentwood Bed

Submitted by 5tarts on Sun, 01/27/2013 - 21:39

My wife and I began the Kentwood bed last weekend as a project for 1) our oldest boy needed a new bed 2) a family project and 3) a project that would count for my oldest Weblos project to earn a building badge. After reading up on it about a month ago and finally finding the last Kreg jig in town (fairbanks, ak) we purchased the wood and began the building. This plan calls it a weekend project which it would have been if I had not been in school and other family engagements to get too during the weekend. So the weekend project turned into a two weekend endevor. After much hard labor and buying two cans of stain ( as the first can took a dive onto the garage floor and stained more floor than my project) the finally result is pictured. My wife and I love the look and sturdiness of this bed. After completion and final assembly my only addition or change to this plan would be to suggest using hardware attaching the side rails to the head and foot board, so there is less wear and tear on your project. Thanks for the plans!
