Instructions

Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save our plans, be sure to check back before starting your build, to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using.

Step 1

Cut the pieces for the headboard. Set the Kreg jig for the appropriate setting and drill pocket holes in each end of the 1×2 piece and the 2×2 piece, as well as all four edges of the plywood panel. Assemble as shown using glue and pocket hole screws.

Cut the pieces for the adjustable headboard stops and brace. Set the Kreg jig for the appropriate setting and drill pocket holes in one long edge of each piece. Position as shown then secure using glue and pocket hole screws.

Step 2

Cut the pieces for the adjustable headboard. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the 2×2 piece. Assemble as shown using glue and 2-1/2” pocket hole screws.

Place the adjustable headboard on the brace and secure in place as shown with a few countersunk screws through the brace into the adjustable piece.

Step 3

Cut the pieces for the footboard. Set the Kreg jig for the appropriate setting and drill pocket holes in each end of the 1×2 piece and the 2×2 piece, as well as all four edges of the plywood panel. Assemble as shown using glue and pocket hole screws.

Cut the pieces for the adjustable headboard stops and brace. Set the Kreg jig for the appropriate setting and drill pocket holes in one long edge of each piece. Position as shown then secure using glue and pocket hole screws.

Step 4

Cut the pieces for the adjustable footboard. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the 2×2 piece. Assemble as shown using glue and 2-1/2” pocket hole screws.

Place the adjustable footboard on the brace and secure in place as shown with a few countersunk screws through the brace into the adjustable piece.

Step 5

Cut the pieces for the sides. Cut the notch using a jigsaw. Note that one side of the notch is longer than the other side. Because of the way the headboard and the footboard sit, there will be no left and right so when drilling the pocket holes, refer to the drawing and drill in the position shown. Attach to the headboard and footboard using 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. DO NOT use glue!

Step 6

Cut the pieces for the slat supports. Secure to the bottom of the sides using glue and countersunk 1-1/4” screws.

Cut the pieces for the slats – 39-1/2” long for a twin bed or 54-1/2” long for a full bed. There is a 1” space between the slats. Secure to the supports using countersunk 1-1/4” screws. DO NOT use glue!

Finishing Instructions

Fill any Screw, Nail or Pocket Holes, Sand and Finish as Desired.
