Step 8: Finishing
I also added some hooks around the outside to hang things like belts on.
The bed is quite strong and can easily support the heavy mattress and several people. It also doesn't sway when you climb up or roll over in the middle of the night. This is a fine thing when you're sleeping almost 5 feet off the ground with no railings.
These are only approximate instructions so that you can build/design your own bed in any size, not precise instructions to make a copy of mine, because that would take all the fun out of it!
I will certainly update these as I find out what makes little or no sense to anyone but me!
