Queen Farmhouse Bed

Submitted by cwilliams on Tue, 04/17/2012 - 14:05

We ended up going with a combination of pine, cedar (posts - from Ace Hardware) and regular ole 2xs. We ordered our hardware from Rockler ( http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=10).The bed can be easily disassembled down to the headboard, footboard, side rails, support beams, and platform. It's a quirky combination of woods, but overall we are happy how it turned out. We thought of painting it, but have really been enjoying it as is.

This is so beautiful! I agree with you, the woods beauty is best as is, without paint hiding it. You could put a coat of poly to seal and preserve the wood without losing any of its natural beauty. Great job!

I clicked the link for the rockler hardware that you used. I noticed that it required mortising. Did you find that difficult to do? Did you use a router to mortise the wood?
