In this article I want to tell you how to make a bed frame with your own hands. Recently, I made such a one for my bedroom, and we were delighted with my soul mate, rejoicing in the fact that the new bed withstood the test.
List of purchased lumber:
Begin work by cutting wood. The dimensions of the fabricated structural elements depend on the size of the bed you plan to make, and this is determined by the size of the mattress you have. Below are the dimensions of the frame elements for the size of mattresses, which are manufactured by foreign companies.
King size (1. 9x2 m):
Queen size (1. 5x2 m):
Twin size (1x1. 9 m):
It is much easier to make a bed frame made of wood than the most indecisive can think. In the end, the preparatory stage of the work is completed, the materials are prepared, and therefore it is too late to retreat.
To begin with, you have to assemble the front and rear "walls" of the frame using a slanting joint to flush it. To do this, you need a special tool that allows you to drill holes at an angle.
Plan of the frontal part of the bed.
The back of the bed.
Attach the side pads to the front and back sections. Clamps will help fix the boards in the correct position before screwing in the screws.
At the bottom of each corner, position the triangular inserts serving to prevent deformation of the structure.
5 cm from the upper edge of the side edges place the supports for the rack bottom. Carpenter glue will help to fix them in the right position.
Parallel to the support for the rack bottom, attach a central support bar and an additional leg to its middle . The latter is recommended only for double beds (King size), although it does not hurt for a Queen size. There is no need for an extra leg for twin beds.
The central support bar will connect the middle of the front and rear walls of the frame. Its lower edge should be flush with the bottom of the frame, while the upper will be at the same height as the supports for the rack bottom.
It was the turn of the bed bottom. The first and last slats should be adjacent to the front and rear walls of the frame, the rest - evenly distributed between them (the distance between the slats will be 10 cm).
Well, here you are almost finished making the bed frame with your own hands. Unfortunately, the bedtime has not yet come. I love to take a nap. I dream that the quiet hour is made mandatory at the legislative level. .. However, I digress. ..
Attach the finished frame to the headboard. I used a pair of long screws and L-shaped brackets for this.
Use putty on wood to hide all the holes and gaps in the joints. Sand and paint a wooden surface (I applied two coats of paint before assembling the structure and one after).
It remains to put a mattress, lay a sheet and a blanket and enjoy the result of your hard work!
