Farmhouse Queen Bed, with modifications

Submitted by craw4dz on Thu, 02/27/2020 - 11:27

I built this as a full-size bed to put in our spare room.  I am not fond of the top of the head and foot boards extending out because it wouldn't square-up with the wall (thank you, OCD).  I modified this so that the posts extended above the head and foot board and then trimmed it out inside of the posts.  This project took a couple days to build then another day to stain.  I used knockdown hardware that was terrible to install and won't do it again... lots of hassle and cursing and bloody knuckles.  Overall, I'm very happy with how it turned out and am working on modifying it a little more for our own queen bed with some redwood that my dad had milled up.  Stand by for that!
