humidity of not more than 15%.
Construction of headboard and footboard
Head and footboards will be 3 ply construction made of solid 1”x 4” and 1”x 6” boards. Panels will

be glued, nailed and clamped in a hydraulic press under 140 – 180 pounds per square inch of

sharp edges. Panels not assembled in this manner will not be acceptable.
Construction of side rails

in each end to accept two lag bolts per end. Cleats for bed support will be 1-1/2” x 1-1/2” solid
wood Yellow Pine glued and nailed with 2-3/8” nails. Side rails will be sanded and routed to provide
a smooth finish and eliminate sharp edges.

alcohol based and lacquer topcoat is water based.
Assembly and tools required
Head and footboards will be attached to the side rails with 3/8” x 5” lag bolts and washers (two per
end, four per side rail) set on 3 1⁄4” centers. A 9/16” socket or wrench will be required to properly
tighten lag bolts. Electric impact wrench with 9/16 socket recommended for large, multiple bed
installations. Four slats are attached to side rails using 1-3/4” long screws.
