Building a bed requires working in a large scale, but this project breaks the job into several parts, making planning and assembly more manageable. Build from the outside in: posts and long rails first, then vertical pieces, and then center rails. This approach allows you to dry-fit the piece to get true dimensions for the internal members. Also included are directions for building a router jig to cut the floating-tenon joinery.

    A magnificent bed design Review by Tom

    This is a magnificent design, certainly the most attractive bed ever to grace the pages of FW. I've made 3 of these in cherry, one full size for my wife and myself, and 2 queen size beds for my 2 daughters. I then used some of the design elements -- especially the narrow pinned verticals with the curved tops and bottoms -- on rectangular and circular dining tables. I made the first bed from the FW #156 article before the plans were published, but used the plans on the other 2.
