King Size Bed Frame Plans – PDF Download

Ovidiu 0 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about king size bed frame plans. I designed this farmhouse bed so you can get the job done by yourself and save tons of money. As always, my woodworking plans come with step by step diagrams and full Cut / Shopping lists, so you can build this chair in a few hours with basic tools and materials you can find at most DIY stores. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

It is essential to choose the right materials before starting the construction and the assembly of the bed. As you will see in the project, you need to choose durable lumber with a nice appearance, such as pine, cedar or redwood. Make sure the components are in a good visual condition and choose professional tools when adjusting their size. Take accurate measurements and join the components with glue and screws.

Headboard-panel

Headboard-panel

The first step of the project is to assemble the panel for the headboard. Cut the boards from 2×6 lumber and lay them on a level surface. Add glue to the joints and clamp them together tightly. Align the edges flush and let the glue dry for a few hours.

Next, attach the 1×6 boards to the headboard panels. Fit the cleats to both sides of the panel. Add glue and insert 2″ nails to lock the cleats into place tightly. In addition, align the edges flush before inserting the nails.

After assembling the headboard, you need to attach it to the legs. Use 4×4 lumber for the legs and cut them at 52″. Drill pocket holes though the cleats and secure them to the legs with 2 1/2″ screws. Notice that you need to center the panels to the legs, for a professional result. Add glue to the joints and leave no gaps between the components.

Next, we need to improve the look of the headboard by attaching the 2×4 board to the top. Align the edges flush, add glue to the joints, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock it into place tightly.

Fitting-the-top-board

Last but not least, add a 2×6 board to the top of the headboard. Center the board into place, leaving 1″ overhangs on all sides. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock it into place. Recess the pilot holes, so you can hide the head of the screws.

Footboard-panel

The next step of the project is to assemble the panel for the footboard. Cut all components from 2×6 lumber and lay them on a level surface. Align the edges flush and leave no gaps between the components. Add glue to the joints and let it dry for a few hours.

Attach the 2×4 middle trim to the footboard. Align the edges flush, add add glue, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock it into place.

Footboard-top-trim

Last but not least, fit the top trims to the footboard. Center the trims into place, so you have 1″ equal overhangs on all sides. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure you hide the head of the screws.

Fitting-the-side-1x10-slats

Fitting-the-side-1×10-slats

Next, we need to assemble the bed so use 1×10 lumber for the side boards. Drill pocket holes through the boards and insert 1 1/4″ screws to secure them to the bed legs. Attach the boards flush to the interior edges of the legs. Add glue to the joints and make sure the corners are square.

Stretcher

Stretcher

Use 2×4 lumber for the stretcher. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the stretcher and secure them to the legs with 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are square.

Fitting-the-cleats

Fitting-the-cleats

Fit the 2×4 cleats to build the frame for the mattress. Drill pocket holes and secure them to both ends with 2 1/2″ screws. In addition, add glue to secure the cleats to the side boards. Drill pilot holes and insert 3″ screws to secure the cleats to the side boards.

Fitting-the-middle-legs

Fitting-the-middle-legs

Fit 2×4 legs to the middle cleat, so you add extra support to the bed. Secure the legs to the cleat with 2 1/2″ screws, after drilling pilot holes.

Fitting-the-slats

Fitting-the-slats

Use 1×4 boards for the mattress supports. Place a piece of 2 1/4″ between the slats to create even gaps. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 1/4″ screws to lock the boards to the cleats.
