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 head and foot plus the legs for each. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in the pieces as shown. Attach the legs using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. The ends of each of the legs should be flush with the ends of the head and foot pieces.

Step 2

Cut the pieces for the sides, as well as the slat supports and the legs. Drill pocket holes as shown and attach the legs in the same manner as the head and foot pieces. Attach the slat supports as shown (3/4” down from the top edge of the sides) using 1-1/4” countersunk screws.

Attach the bed brackets according to the manufacturer’s instructions and assemble the bed frame.

Step 3

Cut the pieces for the center support and the center support legs. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” pocket holes and drill holes in each end of the support as well as one end of each of the legs. Attach the legs using glue and 2” pocket hole screws. Attach the entire center support assembly to the head and foot pieces using 2” pocket hole screws. Do not use glue – it may need to be disassembled some day!

Step 4

Cut the pieces for the slats. Position them so they are evenly spaced and attach to the slat 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.
