Queen Size Bed Frame

Submitted by moosmani on Tue, 04/21/2015 - 19:49

This bed frame is for my daughter’s new house, in the guest bedroom.  She chose the design and got all the supplies to make it.  The wood is knotty alder.  It came out looking fairly close to the inspiration picture my daughter gave me to follow. 

I used the Cassidy bed plan and made adjustments to accommodate the iron piece.  The feet and top caps are made of one routered square with another slightly larger, unrroutered square stacked on top of it. 

Thanks for the easy-to-understand plans.  Everything I’ve learned about building has come from this awesome website!
