I spent the past several Saturdays building this simple cherry bed with a friend of mine, Vernon, for his 4 year-old son. It’s a solid cherry frame with veneer panels. It was my first attempt using tenons, and my first bed. He took it home to finish it in his dust free garage :-) with 3 coats of poly. His son loves his new bed.

Vernon has a blog post with some more detail:

Do the panels float and move with the linear movement? Very interesting build.

The panels are plywood and all their edges go with the grain, so expansion shouldn’t be an issue regardless (as I understand it anyway). I believe a few inches of the larger panel is glued, but mostly they float.
