At the time I started this project my daughter was two and looking to other avenues of sleeping – our bed. So, my wife had this great idea to purchase a day bed but we didn’t want to pay that much for a bed. Now, this is the result. I’m a beginner in woodworking there is nothing spectacular about this day bed. The boards lay on top of one another; no fancy joints. Nothing cool to speak of but it was my first big project and it hasn’t fallen apart yet. My wife painted it and it turned out nice. I’m tackling a patio table for her now and as I go along I will incorporate more fancy joints and such. Thanks for looking and happy rippin!

Great job and the finished product is beautiful. Don’t apologize for the way it’s made. I always say if the recipient is happy, that’s all that matters….especially when money doesn’t change hands.
