My build of “House Bed Frame - Modern Tiny House Shape” for Ana-White

Submitted by pondrider on Mon, 05/04/2020 - 08:34…
As a high school teacher, I noticed Ana-White’s post for a contest to build a tiny house-shaped bed heading in to spring break; I entered and was selected. COVID-19 directed my teaching in a very different way and actually slowed down my woodworking while I have finished the project. Inspired by the Ana-White’s writings of making beautiful furniture with typical tools, this project is a perfect example of being able to build without the need for high-end shop machines. I followed the plans almost to the letter while keeping my mind open to slight improvement especially around the process of transportability. As a teacher, I emphasize that every writing is ready for editing and revision; with experience in woodworking, I approach building in a similar manner. My finished project below pictured below has some minor revisions planned for disassembly and reassembly in a minimal number of parts using only a screwdriver.

Smart and stylish woodworking plans to make your home awesome.
