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.
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.
A bed is in fact a very personal space and it is best to not use a bed that was owned by someone else for a long time. In many cultures, a newly married couple will receive a new mattress and some people get a new mattress whenever they move into a new house. Many people instinctually do not want to keep a mattress slept in by a former spouse. There is a feeling by most people that residual energies, if not just memories, linger with the old bed and past relationships. Four poster beds with a canopy cover end up being good remedies for beds under exposed beams. The fabric of the canopy can deflect the downward pressure of a beam. That said, you don’t want a bed that is too large and overbearing for a smallish room. It is not good or bad Feng Shui to have night stands and you can ignore the New Age myth that a single woman needs to have two night stands in order to get into a relationship.
