D.I.Y. queen size bed



just thought i would show a queen size bed i made over the last weekend it in july 


ive been looking for a solid bed base for a while now and got sick of looking at cheap easy beds that break to easy so decided to build my own 

it took me  two days to build  but have actually had 5 poeple climb all over it at once and no creaks groans or breakages 

have plenty of photos  but will only show some 

tell me what you think 

i built this for around $350  all from bunnings pine timber

Re: Queen size bed

Great work @Gaz. I'm sure this will inspire other community members. Shame about the brown and gold spoiling your fantastic handiwork though!
