    Go buy a piece or two more of the 1x4s and screw them in vertically, just like how that video has the metal corners. It will hide most of your screws and uneven cuts, plus being a nice trim accent.

    Or use some extra 1x4 to make wooden corners to cover it.

    It turned out pretty well. Now I have to sand and stain it.

    I’m all for pride in my work but you know you are about to fill that box with dirt right.

    Stain away but don’t waste your time sanding.

    If they’re going to regularly be in close proximity to it I’d want to sand it.

    Question for my carpenters in here...

    So my middle daughter has a lofted bed like this:
    upload_2021-10-21_12-49-22.png

    My youngest is going to be moving into the room with her and I'm thinking of ideas on how to create another bed frame underneath the lofted bed. Any ideas? My initial thought is to frame something in (not sure how as I've never done anything like this) and then get some wood slats to put the mattress on?

    I’d put one at a 90 degree angle along the wall. I’d make it a separate piece that can also be used stand alone if/when that time comes. Maybe attach it to the posts with a couple of L brackets or something easily removable if you want it to stay in place.

    If you want to do traditional bunk beds you can definitely get away with attaching a couple of 2x4 rails to the posts, then add a crossmember at each end to support a center rail and do slats. Maybe add a lip to keep the mattress in place.

    Shit, throw the mattress and box spring on the floor and use 1 1x10 to hold it in and cover it.

    Right, what would you use for the bed frame? 1x6? 1x8? I guess I wasn't very clear, but looking for suggestions on how to construct the bedframe myself.

    Bed frame would need be something you could either take apart or get through the bedroom door. I guess weight bearing would be the only concern. Seems like using wood slats is pretty standard and what I would do.

    100% make sure you use slats. You should only need 5 across to support a bunkie board or box spring.

    I’d use 2x4 or 2x6 personally. Fasteners are going to play a big part. 1x4 slats. I tend to overbuild.

    An independent frame would look for me like:
    Four-sided 2x4 outside frame, oriented vertically. 2x4 center rail. I’d drill a lag screw at the center of each corner and add 2 predrilled 3” screws on top and 2 on bottom. 5 total fasteners in each corner. The rail would get two lag screws on each end, again predrilled. I set my slats at an even spacing, meaning a slat, then a 3.5” gap. toss one drywall screw into each end and in the center rail. Then I’m trimming the whole thing in painted 1x6 to hid the ugly stuff and provide a lip to stop the mattress from sliding.
    Legs could vary a lot. I am really not good at legs.

    The last two days we cut and sanded the strips of walnut and maple, cut the handles, and soaked the first set of strips and formed it around the jig to dry. Plan to glue the first one up tomorrow. We would have formed the second one but, we needed more clamps.
