Panel bed with box springs

I built this bed for a guest room. Easier than I expected and took 2 days! I used watco danish oil in medium walnut. I was able to save some $ by using two twin box springs that I already owned instead of adding slats. I modified the height of where the box springs sit by lowering the cleat 2” and shortening the legs on the center support by 2” as well. It worked perfectly!
