    General Instructions

    Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain.

    Step 1

    Attach 3/4″x8″x55″ MDF or 1×8 side piece to base piece using 1 1/4″ screws and glue. If using pocket holes, drill holes on the inside, spacing about every 11″ (or as recommended by pocket hole maker).

    Step 2

    Repeat for other remaining two 3/4″x8″x55″ MDF or 1×8 side pieces.

    Step 3

    Attach all three 3/4″x8″x55″ MDF or 1×8 side pieces to the top (second) base piece using 1 1/4″ screws and glue. If using pocket holes, attach from the inside/underside, spacing about every 11″ (or as recommended by pocket hole maker).

    Step 4

    Attach 3/4″x8″x45″ MDF or 1×8 side piece to base piece using 1 1/4″ screws and glue. If using pocket holes, drill holes on the inside, spacing about every 11″ (or as recommended by pocket hole maker).

    Step 5

    Repeat for other remaining three 3/4″x8″x45″ MDF or 1×8 side pieces, spaced 24″ apart (remember to allow for width of wood in between).

    Step 6

    Attach the mattress support (frame) to the tops of all four 3/4″x8″x45″ MDF or 1×8 side pieces using 1 1/4″ screws and glue. If using pocket holes, attach from the inside/underside, spacing about every 11″ (or as recommended by pocket hole maker).

    Finishing Instructions:

    Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
