Well the long awaited post about how we (the Mr.) made bed frames is here!! I could not be more excited to show off the beautiful work! These were an adaptation of a bed we saw on Pinterest and just about 3 years of design and deliberation 😉
But they are beautiful and well worth the wait.
So we went to Home Depot to pick out a wood- we settled on birch plywood 3/4″ thick, it came in sheets of – 50×45- but we had them cut it in half.
From there the exact shape was cut with a routerthen sanded….and sanded some more
The frame was affixed with dowels and wood glue. Using a router bit all edges of the frame were rounded… nothing is worse than a kiddo with sharp edged furniture… two supports were placed for the mattress slats with glue and screws with one cross beam. 4 dowels were placed facing up to hold to slats taught on the frame.
In hindsight we should have known to make these supports a bit more beefy A & B jumping on these busted one about 6 months- I would suggest a thicker piece of wood over excess plywood like we used.
much of this we did with the tools we had so other tools my work better but ….
you get the idea
