So i have a 3 year old daughter i decided to make a doll bed for. The headboard and footboard are mortise and tenon. The top cap is doweled, the side strechers are attached via pocket screws and I just finish nailed the mattress slats in place. This is all built from scrap cedar laying around the shop. Should hold up for years to come. (Hopefully). A fun one day project that i used several skills to make, always a win in my book. Thanks for looking.
