Queen Size Floating Bed Plans

Ovidiu 0 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about platform and floating bed frame plans. You can build this modern bed with both a platform and floating style, in just one weekend. This queen size bed also comes with a simple headboard to complete the look of the project. 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.

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.

Base-frame

Base-frame

The first step of the project is to assemble the frame for the base. Therefore, cut everything from 2×6 lumber, as shown in the diagram. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the 43″ beams and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them together. Make sure the corners are square and leave no gaps between the components.

Next, fit the middle components to the frame. Drill pocket holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the 2×6 components into place.

Fit the rest of the blockings to the frame, as shown in the diagram.

Top-frame---assembly

Top-frame—assembly

The next step of the project is to assemble the top frame. Cut the components from 2×8 lumber and then lay them on a level surface. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the 59″ long beams. Alternatively, you can drill pocket holes at both ends of the 59″ long components and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the 82″ beams. (see in the bellow diagram how to space the beams)

Continue the project by assembling the two frames together tightly. Therefore, use 2×4 lumber for the supports. Center the bottom frame to the top frame, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly.

Bed-frame-trims

Bed-frame-trims

Use 1×4 lumber for the trims. Make the 45 degree cuts to the trims, as shown in the diagram. Fit the trims to the top frame and secure them into place with 2″ nails. Add glue to the joints, as well.

Fitting-the-sheets

Fitting-the-sheets

Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the bed frame, as well. You don’t need to secure the panels into place with screws or nails. Gravity along will do it’s job.

Supports

Supports

Furthermore, we need to cut the supports for the headboard. Use 1×4 boards and make the angle cut with a saw.

Fitting-the-headboard-supports

Drill pocket holes through the supports and then secure them to the bed frame with 1 1/4″ screws. Plumb the supports vertically before inserting the screws.

Attaching-the-headboard-slats

Attaching-the-headboard-slats

Attach the 1×6 boards to the headboard. Leave no gaps between the boards and secure them to the supports with 2″ nails and glue.

Headboard-top-trim

Headboard-top-trim

Use a 1×3 board for the top trim. Use a saw to make a 5 degree bevel cut to one side of the board. Fit the trim into place and secure it with 2″ nails and glue.

This bed is super sturdy and if built properly, it will last for generations. You need to fill the holes with wood putty and let it dry out for a few hours. Smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint / stain to enhance the look of the bed frame.

This bed is designed for a queen size mattress. This is both a platform and a floating bed. If you are into modern designs with straight lines, this plan is the one for you. See plans for a farmhouse queen size bed HERE.
