Fancy Farmhouse King Bed Frame

Submitted by gbenton4 on Sun, 07/13/2014 - 19:34

We've had our bed on a small metal frame for years with the hopes of someday finding a bed frame that we liked. With the family out of town, I decided to try and build one after getting this site from a friend (LSU Builder). The steps and materials were a HUGE help! I only had to make a small amount of changes from the original plans....most notably adding additional 2x4's to each headboard leg along with one in the middle. This created more space to connect the headboard to the body of the frame with the bolts. This was the first time I'd ever used a Kreg jig to create pocket holes. I will definitely use these for other projects as they seem to be extremely strong.
All in all, I will definitely be using the site for additional plans. I'm an intermediate "wood worker" and really enjoy tackling projects. Thanks!0
