Picture of Build a Twin Bed
DSC03216.JPG
This instructable will hopefully show you how to make a twin size bed (for a 75"x38" mattress) using common framing lumber and without the need for any special woodworking skills.  The tools I used were a mitre saw, table saw, drill and random orbit sander, but it could likely be built with nothing but a circular saw and a drill if a person was determined enough.  As always when using power tools, make sure you wear eye and hearing protection and understand how to properly use the tool before proceeding.
