Bed frame out of construction brackets and lumber

Hi Everyone,

I am sooooooo tired. I spent a long, hot day cutting and assembling a full-sized bed frame out of construction lumber and construction brackets.

I must say the concept is good but needs a lot of refinement. Here are the two photos I have the strength to upload:

Here's all the stuff:

...and here is the bed:

For the most part the bed went together quite well. The construction brackets make this thing very strong and very sturdy. I think you could park a car on top of it.

I'm going to make another one and next time I'll use better quality lumber and take more time to make it. Then I'll post the procedure and photos.

Its been super hot here today and I'm a little dehydrated so I'm going to go get something to drink and relax.

The gift boxes came out well. They need one more coat of varnish and then they'll be ready.

I'll do a Labor Day posting tomorrow.

Take care,
