Cutting Instructions:

Make sure that your panel boards measure 7 1/2″ wide. If they do not, you will need to add to your panel. The easiest method is to add 1×2 trim to the front and back of the panel, on the ends, on top of the 1x8s. This will create a full frame around the panel and give your bed a more custom look and no one will ever know those 1x8s don’t make it to your posts.

Step 1

Building the panels.
Start by attatching the 1x8x30″ boards to the 1x4x60″ as shown in the picture. Butt the 1x8s to get the planked look. Make sure you use 1 1/4″ brad nails, at least two nails per board and use wood glue.

Other side of the panel
Flip the panel over and do the other side, as shown. This time use longer nails, between 1 1/2″ and 2″ (prefered) and glue. Again, make sure you do the two nails per board.

Step 2

Now attatch the 4×4 posts to the panels. Make sure you pre drill half way through the post and use the 4 1/2″ screws. Line the top edges of the panel and the post, keeping everything square as shown. Screw into the panel where it is sandwich 3 boards thick. Put at least 6 screws in each post.

Step 3

2×4 Top. First, line the 2x4x67″ up on top of the headboard. I actually recommend you measure the top of the panel and 4×4 posts and make an exact cut instead of just cutting at 67″. Then cut the 2×6 2″ longer than the 2×4. Use screws to secure the board to the top of the panel, making sure to screw into the posts on both ends. Use glue.

2×6 Top. Then, center the 2x6x70″ board on top of the 2x4x67″ and screw together. At this point, the headboard should be complete.

Footboard. Put together the footboard using the same steps as 1-7, but with the shorter panel and posts.

Step 4

Optional Bed Frame if you do not have a box spring. Please also visit the other beds in the collection to see other options for building a bed frame or using a box spring. Construct the frame as shown, leaving a 3 1/2′ overhand on the headboard end to secure the frame to the headboard. Predrill to at least 4 holes to in this overhang to ease attatching to the headboard. Space the joists every 16″ and use at least 3 screws per joist per side. Pre drill into the last joist to prepare to attatch to the footboard. Use glue. The frame will be attatched as follows.

Step 5

Attach through the siderails into the headboard posts. Attach the bottom of the bed frame directly into the footboard.

Finishing Instructions

Prepare for finish by filling holes, sanding and cleaning all sanding residue from project and work surfaces.
