I built this out of poplar, at the lumberyard's suggestion, and painted it. It went smoothly and quickly. Like a previous reviewer, I suggest adding 2" to the length of the sideboards, or the mattress fit will be very tight. I also lowered the attachment height of the side boards to keep our mattress and spring at the level of the top of the footboard, but the attachments still seem very sturdy. Easy to make this with a good table saw and (in my view) a good table saw sled.
