Making The Frame

You will need to cut two (2) pieces of H-columns 8 1/2" long, and four (4) pieces of .080 strips 3 1/2" long. Cut a 45 degree angle at one end of the H-columns.

Glue one strip at both ends of the H-columns making sure to keep the strips square to the H-columns. Mark the H-columns 2 3/4" and 5 1/2", this is where the other 2 strips go.

This completes the base frame of the bed.

Making The Deck

Now you will need to cut a 8 17/32"x3 17/32" piece of .030 sheet plastic. The over sized piece makes for easier attachment and can be sanded in finial assembly.

I found it easier to sand surface of the deck now rather then waiting after it is attached to the frame. Using a slow setting glue, attach the deck to the frame with some clamp. Set it aside to dry.
