Nice! Have you built these before? Is that Tamarack or Larch? How long do they last? 

Lol.. Sorry for all the questions. I'm building a few this spring too and don't have a specific plan yet...

Larch should last 15 to 20 years.

Had bought a couple a few years ago.  took best of each design and came up  with this.  

6in wide  5/4  larch.  3x3 larch legs. 5/4 larch slab for bottom ( leave gaps for drainage)  the bottom boards rest on  5/4 x 5/4  ledge and are screwed down into it..   

You either want cedar or larch/tamarack  or redwood . no pressure treated..  

You could use 3/4 thick but i found this lets me make longer beds that dont sag.  Plus thicker will last longer. 

I have the advantage  of milling these myself so i can make whatever i like size wise.
