There are certain pieces of furniture in a house that are essential and one of these is a bed. It doesn’t matter what kind of bed, be it single, double, Queen or even King-sized, but the fact of the matter is, everybody sleeps on a bed of some type for usually for a good 6-8 hours every day. With a piece of furniture so essential to everyday living, wouldn’t it be great if you could save the high cost of buying this bed by learning how to make one for yourself using woodworking bed plans.
Attach the sideboards to the headboard and footboard using small screws and some wood adhesive, being careful not to crack the wood by using screws which are too big. Next we do the outer trims, which should again be cut using the same dimensions as the bed. Attach these to the bed frame. Now we move on to the slats which add stability to the bed. Cut a dozen of these pieces and attach them between the sideboards at regular even intervals. These can be screwed to the bed frame using small screws. If you have small joint cracks you can apply some of the filler/adhesive/spackle you bought to fill these in. Always perform a strength check at this point as any inherent weaknesses will be amplified at the finished stage by loose joints or cracked wood during the building process.
Choosing a new bed for your child can be a bit more challenging than choosing your own bed. This is because you also have to take into account your child’s safety. You want a bed that is not only comfortable and stylish but also appropriate for your child’s age. Ensuring that your child is safe in his bed will also give you peace of mind. When it comes to safety and comfort, platform beds will be on top of the list. Platform beds sit low to the ground which means that your child can climb in and out of the bed with ease. You also wouldn’t be worrying about your kid falling off from the bed while sleeping since the bed is only elevated a few inches from the ground. Platform beds also have a built-in foundation made from either solid wood panel or slat support system, making sure that your mattress is secure. With how the bed is designed to sit low to the ground, you can make a small room look roomier because it gives the illusion of a higher ceiling. By enhancing the visual space in the room and giving the room an airy feeling, you will also be providing a more comfortable environment for your child.
