If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Looking good I built the same one for my grandson, If I built again I would omit the pull out and just have the drawers.

Trundle is done. I have a couple of drawer pulls that are high by about 1/8" at one end. I was wondering if there was an easy way to elongate the hole to avoid installing a dowel and redrilling.

I'll bet you'd be happier with it in the long run if you dowel and redrill.
That's a really nice bed!

Question: do you think anyone other than yourself will notice this 1/8 difference?

The handles are spaced well apart.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

My wife saw it first. I'd never hear the end of it.

Nuff said.

The bed has been delivered. My granddaughter seems happy with it. I'll have to build a bigger step, the bed is too tall for her.

Pretty bed for a pretty little girl.
Good job.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
