Take a look at this queen-size timber frame bed! This would be a great way to incorporate the strength and beauty of timber frames into your home! The timber frame and craftsman-like style give it a rugged elegance. The chamfered tops on the sturdy 6×6 posts add a bit of refinement to this queen-size timber frame bed. And you’ll be proud to show off the mortise and tenon joinery to your friends!
The overall dimensions are 5’-5 ½” x 7’-9”. The headboard is 4’-3 ¾” tall, and the footboard is 3’-3 ¾” tall. We have incorporated a 1 ¼” x 1” channel for decking the headboard and footboard infill – or you can use the material of your choice. This is designed for a box spring- the purchaser must add a plywood platform if a box spring is not used.
You will receive links to download the plan set pdf as soon as you purchase. The construction set contains three pages of completely dimensioned drawings so you can clearly understand how to cut and assemble the bed frame. The piece drawing set has nine pages that contain 2-and 3-dimensional drawings of every timber, with each cut noted and dimensioned. We also provide you with peg and timber lists so that you know exactly what to purchase to get started on this fun and rewarding project.

This looks great. Would be amazing finished in shou sugi ban style. I’d be interested in king plans, too.
Looks good. Any chances of a set of king plans?
They are on the list to produce. Wanted to prove the concept for this one first. Stay tuned.
My wife and I are really intrigued. If one has to move the bed to a new location (home)? How does it come apart?
You just pound out the pegs and take it apart. Reassembling would be the same as the first time.
Thanks for the write-up. Timber is definitely the way to go.
