Built myself a new bed

Built myself a new bed

I saw a bed that I liked in a furniture store, it was very expensive so I decided to make one myself for less than a 1/4 of the price.

 

I didn't have any plans to work from, I just eyeballed it.

 

Very happy with the end result.

Re: Built myself a new bed

As someone that purchased a very expensive and almost identical bed @WoodenGregsWood, I'd have to say yours looks far more substantial. If it weren't for wanting to appease my significant other, I would have preferred building something like this, and it would have been a far better choice. With fixings tightened up, it is still rickety, squeaks and is manufactured from fairly budget materials despite the price tag.

 

Many thanks for sharing and great work!

Re: Built myself a new bed

Hi Jason,

My objective was to be very budget conscious so for the two ends of the bed i used pine and lining boards to fill in the ends.

 

The rails are hardwood with the slats used from my old bed.

 

Cheers
