    It's been awhile since I have been able to get any real wood working projects done. To many other issues kept getting in the way. However, the last of the kid moved out and my wife left the now spare bedroom empty for the longest time, except for the spare bed on a frame. Seems she had...

  6. "Floating" Reclaimed bed frame with drawers

    I built this bed frame for a customer a few years ago. She had the head board so i had to match the frame to it. She wanted a "floating" design with drawers built into the sides. The bulk of the structure was actually built with new from the lumber mill oak for strength. Once the frame and...

    I made this oak bed frame to complete my bedroom set. The original design was from wood magazine Issue 187 November 2008: But I didn't really like the pencil-posts or canopy top, then I found a video from St Pierre Woodworking on how to make the spiral legs. To make the legs round, I made...

  12. Long Twin Bamboo Bed Frame

    I was walking around the Big Orange Box and had an idea. Why couldn't I use flooring like home siding to give a simple project a very high end look. I needed a new bed frame so here is what I built. I chose solid bamboo flooring for the project. It was already mortise and tenoned so I didn't...
