Queen Size Bed


Member • Pelham, Alabama, AL Shelby


This was a six month build which was donated a year ago to tornado disaster relief. The bed uses heavy timbers through out the project. Side rails are joined to posts with heavy duty metal rail fasteners. It was a very rewarding project.

A queen size bed built a year ago for disaster relief.

I formed each post from five select grade pine boards.

I formed tenons on the cross members...

...and created the foot board.

The head board went together in much the same way except the panel.

I pre-stained parts of the head board.

After making the side rails, I formed a number of finials and picked the four which were best. Stained them and attached to each post.

The bed was donated to a family in central Alabama whose home was destroyed by tornado.
