Stressful work, tiring days at the office, and exhausting daily activities all need a relaxing reward. Since it is not every day that an individual can spend an hour or two at the spa, a great alternative is a comfortable and relaxing bed free of restrictions or limitations. What better way to relax and take a good night’s rest than getting the widest, softest, and incredibly soothing beds out there. People of larger frames and body structure can also take advantage of the size of a super king wooden bed. Not only does it provide enough room for the owner, it also offers a steady and sturdy base. Unlike the common metal beds out in the market, quality wooden beds do not bend or break. Households where the mother, father, and baby sleep together can also be provided with enough room to sleep in as above and at the same time saving space for the other rooms in the house.
If we take a Queen-sized bed as standard, the dimensions measure eight by four feet. Take a piece of MDF and build the headboard first, this should measure four feet in width to match the bed frame, but the height is up to you, although we would suggest two to three feet in height. After you have your headboard it is time to build the sides and footboard, also by using MDF. Depending on the look of your bed, you could design the footboard along similar lines to the headboard dimension wise, as long as it also measures four feet in width. The sideboards should obviously be eight feet in length. By utilising a powered jigsaw, the above steps should be quick and painless and if you’re feeling fancy you can even cut the top and tail boards to include curved edges. Use your sand/emery paper or sanding machine to smooth out any rough edges.
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.
