Cutting Instructions:

Because board widths can vary, check to make sure your 1×6 boards measure 5 1/2″ wide. If they do not, you may need to adjust the width of your panel trim boards, and the header boards. Best advice is to lay out the panel boards first, take a measurement (consider that twin beds are 39″ wide, but there is a little room for play in there) and adjust the remaining cuts accordingly.

Step 1

Build the headboard by first lining all the panel boards out and attaching the panel trim boards with 1 1/4″ nails and glue. Attach from the back to hide holes. Then attach the panel to the legs, then attach the 2×4 header to the legs (top) and panel (top) followed by the 2×6 header centered on the top of the headboard.

Step 2

If you already have a metal frame and boxspring, you are done with the building process. If you have a box spring, you can make the side rails as shown. Also, you can choose the heights of your rails and cleats depending on the thickness of your mattresses and box springs, and whether or not you want underbed storage or trundle.

Step 3

Step 4

If you do not have a box spring, you can place 2×2 every six inches on top of the side rail cleats. Screw in place. Then add mattress to the top.
