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.
The bedroom is the most important room in a house by Feng Shui criteria, and many articles expound on this topic. But the bed its self, apart from the bedroom, is the subject of much misinformation, so this article will attempt to cover some of the major concerns. The shape of the bed should be a stable square shape as most beds are. In the 1960’s there was a brief trend in having round beds (so Austin Powers!) Round beds are not practical and they do not provide a stable sleeping atmosphere. They make energy swirl, which might be okay for other activities besides sleeping. There is nothing inherently bad about a water bed, popularized also in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Since the water is totally sealed inside the bed, it would not even work as the water element if a room needed water present.
If we start by taking a look at the wood, we would advise using MDF (medium density fibreboard) for the bed as this will give it an overall strength. For your army of tools you’ll require saws, sanding machines or paper and ideally a jigsaw plus nail gun, although obviously you can start with the more manual tools like a simple hammer, but you will find a small investment in tools will make all of your woodwork projects much easier time and effort wise. Don’t forget other sundries including nails, screws, adhesives, filler and spackle to cover over thin cracks in the wood joints.
