Finishing the bed
Putting the fininshing touches to the bed, not last weekend, but the weekend before. First step was to install slats made of red gum decking strips. What you can't see here is a central support of angle iron running the length of the bed down the middle. This is supported at either end and with two posts along its length. All up a very sturdy bed! And that's my wife Abbie giving it a test!
Then it's only a case of putting the mattress back on and making the bed (then giving over to my 7yo son Chester for yet more testing!).
