Just got back from NC visiting the son and family. Grandkids!!! Anyway he has limited space, time, and tools, but managed to make a full sized bed for his oldest, who recently turned 4. Took a while, but he found some rough western cedar and did a LOT of sanding. He had all the pieces made and polyed (no stain) so the two of us put together. Kinda neat experience.

Nice bed. But I don't recall the phone ringing, with you calling so we could go out for coffee.

Hope I don't sound like nosy smart arse John,but you aught to tell your son to shave/sand the sharp corners off any areas where the young man could hurt himself. It is a terrific bed & any boy or girl would love it. best wishes, James.

Really nice. I agree on doing some roundovers. I always have bruises on my thigh from running into the sharp corners at the foot of my bed. Getting up in the dark, that happens. But I bet the little guy loves it.

Good John, and you and your son did good on the bed. Your grandson looks like he is going to enjoy that a lot.I agree with the sharp corners on cedar can give off some nasty slivers. I love the grain of cedar.

Son did it all (with a little assistance from the little guy). I just helped assemble the pieces. Don't think he even thought about rounding the corners. Of course, then he would have an excuse to get a router.
