Rectangles Daybed

Submitted by ethidda on Mon, 08/20/2012 - 10:12

For my first woodworking project ever, I decided to make the Rectangles Daybed. I have not handled a power tool before, except the drill. So, over all, I'm quite happy with the result.

I got odd lot fir, which was more expensive, but prettier and easier to work with. I would probably not do that if I had known I was painting it. I also decided to put in IKEA slats instead of making my own.

I put more details in my blog posts.
