This bed is made from MDF with wood trim and drawer fronts. There are 3 "boxes" making up the bed. I've added a headboard and adjusted the drawers to provide for 100lb full extension drawer glides. The bed also has extra trim, like quarter round on the bottom allowing a polished look. I painted all the trim before installing so there were no cut-in lines.
