If we start by taking a look at the wood, we would advise using MDF (medium density fibreboard) for the bed as this will give it an overall strength. For your army of tools you’ll require saws, sanding machines or paper and ideally a jigsaw plus nail gun, although obviously you can start with the more manual tools like a simple hammer, but you will find a small investment in tools will make all of your woodwork projects much easier time and effort wise. Don’t forget other sundries including nails, screws, adhesives, filler and spackle to cover over thin cracks in the wood joints.
There are certain pieces of furniture in a house that are essential and one of these is a bed. It doesn’t matter what kind of bed, be it single, double, Queen or even King-sized, but the fact of the matter is, everybody sleeps on a bed of some type for usually for a good 6-8 hours every day. With a piece of furniture so essential to everyday living, wouldn’t it be great if you could save the high cost of buying this bed by learning how to make one for yourself using woodworking bed plans.
The disadvantage of getting a toddler bed is it can only be used for some time. These beds can only be used for babies about one and a half to three and a half years of age. After that, it would be useless. This can be just an additional cost. So if getting a new bed for your toddler is as easy as you think, put it this way: weigh the pros and cons. Remember a baby would be the one sleeping on it so it would require a little more caution. Think also of your budget. If for the mean time you can only spend this much for a bed, then better to get a less costly one.
