mdf Post Construction

DIY post made out of MDF is what was used to anchor the headboard and footboard of our PB Inspired Beds.  

Please stay with me even if you don’t plan on making the bed.  I have something exciting to show you.

Assembling the PB Inspired Beds 

We went with this method for cost savings plus we knew it wouldn’t twist, warp, or dry and split like a solid 4x4 post would over time. 

MDF Post

I know many of you have been waiting for this tutorial and I’m truly sorry it took so long.  I wanted to do a video tutorial and well……………...

I had to learn how to use my daughters Flip Video, master video editing, and then it took two days to figure out how to upload the video to YouTube!!!   you think I’m kidding???     The MDF post took about 15-20 minutes to make and this video tutorial post took days!!!
