Queen Sized Bed Frame
My wife and I finally bought a house, so I made a queen sized bed for the guest room. It is made entirely from 2x construction lumber. I modified some plans by Matthias Wandel to fit a box spring as well. Here are his plans: http://woodgears.ca/bed/index.html
The finished bed frame.
I bought eight, eight foot 2x10s and thirteen 2x4s to build this project. I have quite a few cutoffs left over that I can use for smaller projects.
Here are some of the pieces rough cut.
These are the leg posts after glueing.
I sanded the headboard and footboard together.
The joinery is pocket holes and glue.
Here is a test fit before shaping and sanding. The bed fit very well!
All finished except for sanding and paint.
Spacers being glued in.
I painted the bed frame with primer for now. We do not know what color we will paint the room, so we can easily change the bed color later.
