King Farmhouse Bed

Submitted by Trnenergy1 on Fri, 02/15/2013 - 16:00

This is the Farmhouse King Bed. I modified this from the plans on this website to accomidate a King mattress in the normal dimensions. I used 2 X 4's 12in on center and then used masonite set on top and screwed on each end. I used joist hangers and the 2 X 4's just sit in the hanger no screws needed. I used 2 X 10's for the rails and got bed brackets from woodcraft.com. Used Minwax wood conditioner, Minwax English Chestnut Oil based stain, and 3 total coats of Poly satin.
