Building a kids bed

Building the headboard

Building the headboard

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the frame of the headboard. As you can easily notice in the plans, we recommend you to build the legs and the top component out of 2×2 lumber and the bottom component out of 2×6 lumber.

Make notches to the side legs and drill pocket holes at both ends of the bottom component. In addition drill pilot holes at both ends of the legs and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the top component.

Building the panel

Building the panel

Fit the panel slats to the headboard, as described in the image. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the slats and secure them to the frame using 1 1/4″ screws. Add waterproof glue to the joints and remove the residues using a damp cloth.

Fitting the trims

Fitting the trims

If you want to enhance the look of the headboard, we recommend you to attach decorative trims to the top and to the bottom of the frame. Mark the cut lines on the slats and get the job done with a jigsaw. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper and remove the residues using a cleaner.

Building the footboard

Building the footboard

The next step of the woodworking project is to build the footboard of the kids bed frame. Therefore, build the legs out of 2×2 lumber and the panel out of 1×6 lumber. Drill pilot holes at both ends of the slat and secure it to the legs by using 1 1/4″ galvanized screws. Make sure the corners are square and add waterproof glue to enhance the bond of the joints.

Fitting the side components

Fitting the side components

Drill pilot holes a both ends of the 1×6 slats and secure them to the legs using 1 1/4″ screws. Add waterproof glue to the joints in order to create a rigid structure. Make sure the corners are right-angled and check if the components are perfectly horizontal. Leave no gaps between the components and work with attention.

Fitting the cleats

Fitting the cleats

Attach the cleats to the interior faces of the bed frame. Drill pilot holes through the cleats and lock them into place with 2″ galvanized screws. Add waterproof glue to the joints in order to create a rigid structure.

Fitting the support slats

Fitting the support slats

Continue the woodworking project by attaching the 2×2 cleats to the interior faces of the bed frame. Drill pilot holes holes through the cleats and secure them to the bed frame using 2″ screws.

Afterwards, attach the 1×4 slats to the cleats, making sure you place them equally-spaced. Drill pilot holes through the slats and secure them to the cleats using 1 1/4″ screws. Add waterproof glue to the joints and remove the excess. Make sure the support slats are perfectly horizontal.

Fitting the side rails

Fitting the side rails

Build the side rails out of 1×2 lumber, making sure you take accurate measurements and get the job done with a circular saw. Drill pilot holes through the components and secure them to the frame of the bed using 1 1/4″ screws. Add waterproof glue to the joints and remove the residues using a damp cloth.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the table from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain. Place the table in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
