King headboard woodworking plans 2014,designs for table legs,how to make doll sofa set - 2016 Feature

Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. Remember how we built a beautiful upholstered headboard and bed frame for our master bedroom a couple of weeks ago?
TJ ended up taking the day off a Tuesday (thanks to commuting half way to Salt Lake, realizing he didn't have his laptop, calling me to check if it was at home, my phone not working, coming all the way home to get his lap top, realizing it was in his car the whole time, then it turned into taking a personal day and not going in at all), so it ended up being the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time building in the basement. We measured the inside dimensions of the center panel and then cut our "chair rail" molding to fit (at 45 degree miters). We measured the top width for the crown molding-looking piece (this is just a chair rail, so it just requires a miter cut on the chop saw). We already had the bed frame done from our other bed, but we built another bed frame for the upholstered bed we sold.
My wife wants me to make a Greene and Greene bedroom set and your bed would be a perfect start.
If you print out or save our plans, be sure to check back before starting your build, to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans.


The clear dimension from one side to the other is what the long edge of the miter to the long edge of the miter should be. The then filled in the nail holes with wood filler and filled in the miter joints with wood filler. The length was the inside lengths of the miter cuts, so the piece is actually poking out on the ends.
We used the same stain as we did on our upholstered headboard, we used a quart of ANT Wal Polyshade bombay mahogany.
I realized the client liked Greene and Greene pieces which allowed me some clarity and direction. We opted for a shelf with storage below and a custom headboard to fit into a 1912 Bungalow with original interior details.
Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling.
It can also be attached to the frame first, then the opening can be cut out with a router and a flush cutting bit.


All the pieces we found were either not the shape I was looking for or not stain grade material. It's easiest to hold up the piece on the headboard before you cut it and draw the direction of the cut. Two large Mahogany planks reclaimed from Baldy's shop attic lumber storage made it all possible. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages.
Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using.
