Farmhouse Bed - Canadian King

Submitted by rbernier09 on Thu, 11/28/2019 - 06:39

Followed Ana’s plans to the inch and I had no issues at all everything fit like a glove. I used knotty pine for all facing boards except for the 2x4 sandwiched second from the top on both head and footboard (used spruce). I used spruce for anything that would be hidden. Glue and #10 fasteners. Instead of screwing the side rail cleats to the foot/headboard post I used 3.5 inch bolts and washers.

A Canadian King is when your dog owns your bed and allows you to sleep in it.
